The Archdiocese of Tuam will be participating in Pope Francis’ 24 Hours for the Lord initiative by hosting a Weekend of Mercy in the Diocese on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 March.
There will be adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the Cathedral of the Assumption in Tuam from 10.00 am on Saturday 5 March right through to 10.00pm that night (except during Masses). The Sacrament of Reconciliation will also be available on Saturday 5 March from 10.00am to 10.00pm and from 9.30am to 2.00pm on Sunday 6 March (except during Masses).
A specially printed Cathedral Prayer Card for the Jubilee Year will be given to Mass goers as they leave through the Door of Mercy in the Cathedral.
Pope Francis has written in his introduction to the Year of Mercy that special graces are available for the faithful who do all of the following:
- Attend Mass
- Visit the Door of Mercy
- Pray the Creed
- Avail of the Sacrament of Confession
- Be merciful by doing one of the Corporal or Spiritual Works of Mercy.
By taking part in some of the events during the Weekend of Mercy in Tuam, the faithful can complete, some, if not all of the above. All are welcome!
