JUBILEE OF MERCY AND MERCY MONDAYS
December 8, 2015 to November 20, 2016
Pope Francis has opened the Jubilee Year of Mercy. The Jubilee Year is rooted in Biblical tradition and is a time set aside to reflect on Godís loving action in the world. This Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy is under the title ďMerciful Like the Father.Ē In a particular and powerful way Pope Francis is inviting the Church to experience the amazing grace of Godís mercy. Godís mercy knows no limits and we are called to the instruments of Godís mercy in the world today. The parishes of Orland Park and Tinley Park are collaboratively working to celebrate this Jubilee Year. On the second Monday of each month we will host a Mercy Monday event. These different events will rotate among the parishes and include times of prayer, reflection and putting mercy in action. Each of these events will build upon developing a better understanding of Godís Mercy.
November 14--St. Michael--Paul Hillebrand. Come, Fill the Well Within - How Mercy is the key to Giving us Full Wells. An evening of prayer, song and reflection to close the Jubilee Year of Mercy. Refreshments will be offered at the conclusion of the evening.
