Year of Mercy

In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, we are called to contemplate God’s abundant love and to share compassion with our global family, in particular remembering refugees and migrants.

Find resources to inspire you to celebrate the Year of Mercy in your parish or community, including our refugee pilgrimage.
