The Holy Year of Mercy began on 8 December 2015 on the solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. The Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy is an invitation to all Christians to draw closer to Jesus who is “the face of the Father’s mercy” Misericordiae Vultus #1. We are called in many ways throughout this holy year to experience God’s mercy, through the undertaking of pilgrimages, walking through Holy Doors, and undertaking corporal and spiritual acts of mercy.
Holy Family school have created their very own Holy Doors. Our main Holy Door that welcomes you into our school has been based on the Holy Door at St Paul's in the Vatican. Each classroom door has a merciful theme too. Father Neil came and blessed our Holy Doors alongside the children from the Ad Astra and Mini Vinnie groups.
