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 Fathers,

Earlier this evening in Rome I received the following request for prayers from Joan Rosenhauer, executive vice president of U.S. Operations for Catholic Relief Services.  Your prayers, and those of all the faithful in the diocese, will be most appreciated.  I have attached a prayer service and petitions provided by CRS.  I would also encourage you to consider offering a daily Mass in the near future, using the readings of the day, “For the Preservation of Peace and Justice” (no. 30 of the Masses and Prayers for Various Needs and Occasions).  Here is Ms. Rosenhauer's message:

Dear CRS Partners:

Your prayers are needed for peace in Sudan and South Sudan!

Southern Sudan became the world’s newest nation after a referendum that was, against all odds, peaceful and orderly. It is a testimony to the power of prayer and the will of people who insisted that a peaceful future is possible for this war-torn region. You were among them. Your prayer, your advocacy and your support for peacebuilding efforts in Sudan were an essential part of the global effort that worked.

But the hope and progress could be erased if the outstanding issues between Sudan and South Sudan are not settled. Escalating violence is threatening the future of South Sudan and ongoing conflict in Darfur, as well as along the border of Sudan and South Sudan--in Abyei, the Nuba Mountains, and Blue Nile--is jeopardizing stability for all of the Sudanese people.  We are asking again for your prayers for all the people of Sudan.

We offer you a brief prayer and intercessions, along with a prayer service for the Sudanese people.  

Thank you for everything you do for our brothers and sisters around the world and your continued prayers for the people of Sudan and South Sudan.

Peace & Blessings,
Joan Rosenhauer
