Door of Mercy

doorofmercy2Bishop Brendan, together with priests and people from the diocese, gathered at noon on Sunday December 13th to celebrate Mass and open the “Door of Mercy” in the Cathedral of The Annunciation and St Nathy, Ballaghaderreen.  The ceremony, simple and to the point, sought to mark the opening of the Jubilee Year of Mercy called for by Pope Francis. Michael McCormack a local photographer has supplied the accompanying images.

YEAR OF MERCY

francisyearofmercyOn Sunday next, December 13th, Bishop Brendan will open the DOOR OF MERCY during the 12noon Mass at the Cathedral of The Annunciation and St Nathy, Ballaghaderreen. During the coming months people will be invited to make “pilgrimage” to the Cathedral and share in the Mercy of the “open door”.  Each parish too will celebrate the Jubilee Year of Mercy.  A special feature has been added to our Diocesan Website and will be updated regularly during the coming months.
