Holy Door of Mercy

In this Year of Mercy, many churches and pilgrimage sites have been asked by Pope Francis to open a Holy Door of Mercy. In the UK a number of Shrines associated with the CA have opened Holy Doors, including Walsingham; Shrine of Saint Jude, and all of the diocesan cathedrals. Do consider a visit!

In February 2016, the Bishop of Lourdes opened a Holy Door at Saint Michael’s gate entrance to the Sanctuary. Mgr Bill Saunders was out there to witness the ceremony, and has sent us some photos of this occasion, below:
