UPDATED: Parish Pilgrimages to St. Paul Cathedral During The "Year of Mercy"
 
year of mercy logoDear Fathers:
 
Kindly note the correspondence you received from Monsignor Ecker last year on the "Year of Mercy."  The memo includes a schedule of Sundays when your parish will be remembered in prayer at the Cathedral during this Extraordinary Holy Year of Mercy proclaimed by Pope Francis.  While you and your parishioners are welcome at the Cathedral at any time, your scheduled Sunday may be an opportune time for parishioners to visit, walk through the Holy Door, and gain, if they wish, the plenary indulgence tied to the "Year of Mercy."  Please publicize for your parishioners the information from the Very Rev. Michael Ibach, our Judicial Vicar, in English and Spanish, on how the indulgence may be gained.  If you would like to adjust your assigned date, contact Monsignor Ecker.

Dear Friends:

I usually don't pass along many videos, but one of our priests forwarded this video to me regarding faith values and public policy. It's not partisan. It's also short – less than five minutes – and it highlights Pope Benedict XVI's emphasis on three key values:
(1) protection of life
especially the life of the unborn young; (2) the importance for society to strengthen and not redefine marriage; and (3) freedom especially religious liberty being a key to a flourishing society. This short video might be a discussion starter for one of your parish meetings and a way to shift the focus away from political parties and candidates and toward values we would like carried forward into public life for the common good of everyone – believer and non-believer. As you know, the Church endorses no candidates. We are not here how to tell people to vote. We are here to form consciences so that our people can vote well.
