This Holy Year of Mercy will come to a close on November 20, 2016, on the Solemnity of Christ, King of the Universe. Join Bishop Christopher Coyne, and the Faithful of the Diocese of Burlington for a very special Mass in celebration of God’s gift of Mercy through His Son Christ Jesus, and the many gifts He has bestowed upon us in this Jubilee year. Mass will begin at 3pm in St. Joseph Co-Cathedral. Fellowship and light refreshments will be available after Mass. 

"In this Jubilee Year, may the Church echo the word of God that resounds strong and clear as a message and a sign of pardon, strength, aid, and love. May she never tire of extending mercy, and be ever patient in offering compassion and comfort. May the Church become the voice of every man and woman, and repeat confidently without end: “Be mindful of your mercy, O Lord, and your steadfast love, for they have been from of old” (Ps 25:6)."  Pope Francis, Misericordiae Vultus
