Our Holy Father Pope Francis on December 8, 2015 opened the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy for the Catholic Church that will continue until the Feast of Christ the King which is November 20, 2016. A Jubilee Year is a period for remission of sins and universal pardon, in this occasion focusing particularly on God’s forgiveness and mercy. This year is Extraordinary because it was not predetermined like Ordinary Jubilee Years that take place every 25 years. The last Ordinary Jubilee Year was held by Pope St. John Paul II in 2000. Along with the opening of the Holy Doors of the Four Major Basilicas in Rome, Pope Francis has asked the local Church to celebrate the Jubilee Year of Mercy. Here at St. Peter’s we are celebrating the Year of Mercy by rediscovering both the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy. For each week in Lent and Easter the priests of St. Peter’s will preach on a particular work of Mercy. For the Works of Mercy schedule, click on the Year of Mercy tab at the top of the page.

Our pews are old. The kneelers need constant maintenance. Please be careful when raising and lowering the kneelers. If you notice a problem, please inform an usher after Mass. Thank you.
