Pope Francis has declared an Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. This Holy Year of Mercy began December 8, 2015, the feast of the Immaculate Conception and the 50th anniversary of the closing of the Second Vatican Council. It will close November 20, 2016, the Feast of Christ the King. This year’s motto is “Merciful Like the Father.”
Our Parish priest was in school to tell all the pupils about the
Holy Year of Mercy.
He explained to all the classes about the Year of Mercy and the symbolism captured in the painting that has been adopted.
