On Saturday, July 9, we took our teens and young adults who are preparing for the sacraments on a Year of Mercy Pilgrimage. The Diocese of Jacmel has designated Immaculate Conception Church in Zoranje as the place for pilgrimage and the holy door for the Year of Mercy. We started the day with a catechesis given by our seminarian, James, who explained the history of the Holy Year of Mercy, the significance of the Door, and the grace of indulgence. We then prayed the Divine Mercy Chaplet, received the Sacrament of Reconciliation, prayed the Rosary, and attended Mass. We thank Madam Omanie who helped us lead the songs and chaplet, as well as Fr. Poussin and Fritz who helped us with the driving. At the end of the day every one of us walked through the holy door of Mercy. It was a mercy-filled day.
