Parish Pilgrimage to the Holy Doors

Parish Pilgrimage to the Holy Doors for the Year of Mercy
Next Sunday is our pilgrimage Mass for our parishes at the Cathedral in New Ulm, Sunday October 9th. There will be two priests from the Cathedral available for Confessions from 3 pm-4 pm,and there will be Mass at 4 pm. Following Mass, in the Cathedral Parish Hall, some ladies from the St Catherine’s and St John’s CCW will provide a light lunch and opportunity to rest and visit before returning. The Wabasso area parishes are invited to come along, and anyone else is welcome to come, too. So invite others. This Mass counts for your Sunday obligation. There will be no organized transportation or time to leave Redwood Falls, giving people an opportunity to organize their own time of arrival.
I want to encourage people also to take advantage of the opportunity with this to go to Confession. Even if it has been a long time since you have gone, please make use of this important opportunity for forgiveness and grace, which the Holy Father has made a central part of this Year of Mercy and his comments so often about the importance of the Sacrament of Reconciliation in our lives.
