Doors of Mercy:
A Pilgrimage for St. Theresa 
Pilgrimage to Rome has been central to the Church’s Jubilee celebrations since 1300. At the four Major Basilicas in Rome—St. Peter’s, St. Paul Outside the Walls, St. John Lateran, and St. Mary Major—Pope Francis will open the special Jubilee doors for pilgrims. In addition, every Cathedral church throughout the world is a designated place of pilgrimage during the Jubilee. At St. James Cathedral, Archbishop Sartain has designated the Cathedral’s great bronze doors as the Doors of Mercy for this Jubilee.


Parishioners of St. Theresa's Parish are invited to
go on a pilgrimage to the Doors of Mercy at
 St. James Cathedral!
Saturday, April 23        9 a.m to 3 p.m

Jean Pierre will say mass in the chapel, and we will gather together for lunch in the parish hall. There will be time for extra reflection before we head home.
