Holy Door Pilgramage
Year of Mercy

In this Year of Mercy, Pope Francis has encouraged all people to make a pilgrimage of some sort.  When one goes on pilgrimage, they move out of their comfort zone and journey someplace previously unknown.  Openness is required.  In our Archdiocese, you can make a Year of Mercy pilgrimage to any of the more than 20 Churches that have a designated Holy Door.  Betsy Dunman of Holy Spirit Parish has created a Holy Door Passport, a guide with contact information for the parishes, Mass and times for Reconciliation, as well as the location of the Holy Doors and times they are accessible. Click here to see this helpful guide.  Holy journeying!
