This year’s calendar reflects the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy which began on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception (8 December) 2015 and which continues until the Feast of Christ the King (20 November) in 2016.
Alongside the logo (click here for a full description of the logo) for the Jubilee Year of Mercy are two quotations from Pope Francis which summarise his intentions for the coming year. The first is a challenge to us as parishioners:
“I have proclaimed an Extraordinary Jubilee of mercy as a special time for the Church – a time when the witness of believers might grow stronger and more effective.”
The second is an inspiration to us to allow our words, and our actions to initiate the example of Jesus:
“Jesus of Nazareth, by his words, his actions and his entire person reveals the mercy of God.”
The parish calendar has been available for the past few weeks in both churches. It is also available for collection from the Parish Shop and the Parish Office.
