Pope Francis declared an Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. This Holy Year of Mercy began December 8, 2015, the feast of the Immaculate Conception and the 50th anniversary of the closing of the Second Vatican Council. It closed on November 20, 2016, the Feast of Christ the King. The year’s motto was “Merciful Like the Father.”
As part of the Year of Mercy, St Joseph’s hosted a Mass at St Mary’s for other deanery schools.
Each classroom door became a ‘Door of Mercy’ to remind the children of the very special year.
