The Opening of the Holy Door to begin the Holy Year of Mercy was celebrated here at the Cathedral on Saturday, December 12 at the 5:00pm Mass.  Prior to the beginning of Mass, Bishop Conlon opened the Cathedral's Holy Door, our local way of joining with Pope Francis as he opened the Holy Door in Rome.  Let us honor this Holy Year in joyful celebration of God's extravagant love and mercy.  To learn more about the Jubilee of Mercy and the Opening of the Holy Door, visit the Jubilee of Mercy website HERE.
