Diocese of Oakland Hosts Mercy Event

March 2, 2016

Diocese of Oakland - As part of a worldwide restorative justice initiative, the diocese is hosting "24 Hours for the Lord." The Cathedral of Christ the Light will be open for continuous reconciliation, meditations on forgiveness, and worship. The event begins with an opening ceremony and reflection on the Jubilee Year of Mercy at 7pm on Friday, March 4, and ends at 5:30pm the next day.

“Let us place the Sacrament of Reconciliation at the center once more in such a way that it will enable people to touch the grandeur of God’s mercy with their own hands. For every penitent, it will be a source of true interior peace.” —Pope Francis, Misericordiae Vultus N.15
