Deanery Pilgrimage

St Joseph's will be joining the parishes of our Deanery for our own Year of Mercy pilgrimage. We want a big turn-out for this: altar servers, banner bearers, families, all the parishioners. Everyone!

We will be starting at 12.15pm at the Cathedral for Mass and then we will head to the Martyrs Memorial on the hillside above the Cathedral where our martyrs were hanged, drawn and quartered. At 1pm the pilgrimage will begin from here. The plan is then to walk down the hill to the Cathedral, praying the Rosary, before entering through the Jubilee Holy Door to receive our Jubilee Indulgence. This will be followed by a time of prayer and adoration in the Cathedral, with several priests from across the Deanery available for Confession. The occasion will be a wonderful opportunity to celebrate God's mercy and an encourgement to live it in our own lives. The event will be finished by 3pm.

 Gathered around the Martyrs Monument beneath Williamson Park, the execution site with the finest view in the world. The site itself is just a boggy, damp spot, unkept and unnoticed. But there are significant words on the monument: 'Can you drink the cup that I am about to drink?'

 The Holy Door in the Cathedral. Crossing the threshold of the Doorway symbolises our own journey, our desire to enter into the Jubilee Grace of Mercy.

 We enter into the Cathedral. Hanging from the pillars are different banners which speak of the different works of mercy.
