Jubilee of Mercy

Merciful Like the Father

Jubilee of Mercy

Pope Francis
What is the Year of Mercy?

Pope Francis declared an Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy to be a "special time for the Church" in which Catholics throughout the world recall and celebrate God's mercy. We are convinced that the path of Mercy on which Pope Francis has placed the Church in this journey of the Jubilee will be a moment of true grace for all Christians and a reawaking to the path of the new evangelization and the pastoral conversion the Pope has indicated.

When does the Year of Mercy take place?

The Year of Mercy begins on December 8, 2015 (Feast of the Immaculate Conception) and ends on November 20, 2016 (Feast of Christ the King).

What is mercy?

Mercy is the bridge that connects God and man, opening our hearts to the hope of being loved forever despite our sinfulness.
