EVERY Thursday until Nov. 20


7:30 AM - 10:00 (+/-) Prayers at Door begin promptly at 7:30, Mass at 8:15, Benediction and recitation of the Rosary will follow mass, along with Divine Mercy Prayers and Reading of the Passion. WHERE:

St. Anthony Catholic Church, 90l N.E. 2nd Street, Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33301

The Holy Door entrance is in front of Church on NE 3rd Street. Parking lot is on the corner of NE 2 St. and 9th Ave. Please arrive at St. Anthony's no later than 7:30 a.m. so we have time to pray* at the Door of Mercy before mass. Those interested in making the pilgrimage have the option to meet us at St. Anthony Church or arrange to carpool from St. Coleman's parking lot. The carpool at St. Coleman's parking lot will meet around 7:00 am. If you would like to join the carpool, it is imperative that you contact Nita at the number below for more details about the exact time and to let her know you are planning to go via carpool. For more information and to notify us if you plan to attend, please call Nita at 954-296-5346. *See the following attachments below for prayers and information about the Jubilee Year of Mercy/Holy Door:



I would encourage anyone making the Pilgrimage to look over these prayers, reflecting on God's Mercy beforehand. The prayers will help you not simply to go in and out, but to go across the Door of Mercy to the other side, to experience a 'passover'; to receive God's mercy so as to become more merciful with others. A Holy Door is a Door of Mercy through which anyone who enters will experience the LOVE of God who consoles, pardons, and instills hope.

The prayer sheet will be made available at St. Anthony's on the designated pilgrimages. You may also print the prayers from the link above.

If you are unable to make the group pilgrimage you can make an individual or family pilgrimage to any designated church with a Mercy Door. The two nearest churches are:

St. Anthony's Church (901 NE 2nd St, Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33301)

Monday - Friday: 8:15am

Saturday: 8:15am and Vigil Mass 5:00pm

Monday - Friday: 9:00am

In speaking of the Year of Mercy, Pope Francis said the Holy Door represents a pilgrimage, the journey each of us makes in life.

"May this pilgrimage be an impetus to conversion; by crossing the threshold of the Holy Door, we will find the strength to embrace God's mercy and dedicate ourselves to be merciful with others as the Father has been with us."

The ritual reminds each of us to recall that Jesus is the Door. (Jn l0.7)

During the Year of Mercy a plenary indulgence can be obtained by passing through a designated Holy Door or performing one of the Corporal or Spiritual Works of Mercy. The plenary indulgence may be obtained under the normal conditions: namely,

Having the interior disposition of complete detachment from sin

Receiving sacramental Confession and the Holy Eucharist

Praying for the intentions of the Holy Father

You may receive the plenary indulgence once per day, either for yourself or you may offer it for a soul in purgatory. Pope Francis says that this Jubilee Year is "the opportune moment to change our lives! This is the time to allow our hearts to be touched. " (MV)

The Jubilee Year CONCLUDES on November 20, 20l6, the Feast of Christ the King.
