Pope Francis has called for a special jubilee year – the Year of Mercy. The Year of Mercy begins December 8, 2015 and ends November 20, 2016. This is a special year for us to grow in faith. In particular, the Holy Father wants us to experience God’s mercy in a profound way during this year, and share that mercy with others. Please watch the bulletin and our website to keep informed of our activities during the jubilee year. To learn more about the Year of Mercy please visit the Year of Mercy website or the Archdiocese of Dubuque website.
