Opening of Holy Year of Mercy in Diocese
In his announcement of a Holy Year of Mercy, Pope Francis decreed that local churches throughout the world open “Doors of Mercy” in Cathedrals on Sunday, December 13, the Third Sunday of Advent. It will follow the Holy Father’s inauguration of the Holy Year in Rome on December 8, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. In the Fall River Diocese, the celebration of the opening of the “Door of Mercy” will be combined with the annual Marian Medal Awards and will be in the context of Solemn Daytime Prayer and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.
