Year of Mercy Pilgrimage to the Cathedral.

Saturday the 15th October was our turn from Skelmersdale, joined by groups from the pastoral area and further afield for the final Archdiocesan pilgrimage at the Cathedral, to walk through the door of mercy as requested by Pope Francis. It was a very moving experience, walking out of the Cathedral and re entering through the Door of Mercy, making the sign of the cross at the Holy Water font, then making our way round the six stations of Mercy. After this we had a service of the sacrament of reconciliation with approximately eight Priests hearing confession. When this finished we had Mass led by Bishop Tom Williams. We finished off the celebration with a little picnic in the basement of the Cathedral as the weather was not kind enough to hold it outside. Still, a wonderful experience for everyone.
