Jubilee of Mercy

The ritual opening of the Holy Door of Mercy at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, December 8, 2015, marks the official start of the Jubilee of Mercy. From that moment, the faithful in every Catholic Church are called to celebrate the Jubilee, particularly through participation in the liturgy. Celebrating Mercy is for all diocesan and religious communities, parishes, and shrines, and includes the official Rite of the Opening of the Door of Mercy in Local Churches.

As Pope Francis says, we are, as a Church, called to “echo the word of God that resounds strong and clear as a message and a sign of pardon, strength, aid, and love.”

Designated Churches for the Jubilee with a Holy Door of Mercy:

St. Paul's Basilica - Toronto

St. Patrick's Parish - Toronto

Merciful Redeemer - Mississauga

St. Anthony of Padua - Bramalea

St. Patrick's Parish - Brampton

St. Theresa's Parish - Scarborough

The Martyr's Shrine - Midland

Marylake Shrine - King City

World Youth Day 2016

Registration and information packages are now available for World Youth Day (July 19 - August 4)

Journey to Krakow Poland with Father Mark to World Youth Day - the international meeting of youth from all over the world, together with the pope in order to profess your faith in Jesus Christ together.

The theme of the XXXI World Youth Day Krakow 2016 is: ‘Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy’ (Mt 5:7). Our Holy Father Francis has chosen the fifth of the eight Beatitudes, given by Jesus in his Sermon on the Mount on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, to show the importance of the Beatitudes which are at the heart of Jesus’ teaching. In his first Sermon, Jesus presents us with eight examples of qualities that bring us closer to the Kingdom of God.

For further details, please contact Fr. Mark in the office at ext. 21
