Our pilgrimage this year takes place on Sunday 4th September during the Jubilee Year of Mercy and offers an opportunity for us to mark this special year with a national gathering. The Mass will be celebrated within the Grotto at 3pm with Archbishop Tartaglia, as principal celebrant and Archbishop Cushley as the Homilist.
An additional feature of this pilgrimage will be the opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation. A number of Bishops and priests will be available to hear confessions in parish church from 12noon until shortly before Mass begins at 3pm.
The parish of St. Francis Xavier also has a Door of Mercy, so people can fulfil all the conditions to receive the Plenary Indulgence for the Jubilee Year
