Jubilee for Workers and Volunteers of Mercy

As with many of the previous Jubilees, the celebrations in Rome will run for three days, beginning on Friday, September 2 and concluding on Sunday, September 4, with the celebration of a Papal Mass, during which Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta will be canonized. On both Friday and Saturday, Jubilee events will include Eucharistic Adoration, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, pilgrimages through the Holy Door, the opportunity to make a journey “In the footsteps of the Saints and Blessed of Mercy”  and static displays by a number of associations of volunteer workers of mercy. There will be catechesis with Pope Francis in St. Peter’s Square on Saturday.
