Papal Year of Mercy
Pope Francis encourages all Catholics to participate in upcoming events in this Year of Mercy. Special grace can be received locally by participating in the numerous events planned in our Archdiocese. A “Pilgrim’s Grace” (indulgence) will be received by all who travel to our Cathedral (Sussex Dr.) and enter through the Door of Mercy. It has been consecrated by the Archbishop for the purpose of receiving an indulgence. Please see the web links below for more information regarding Grace and indulgences. 
The Door of Mercy at Notre Dame Cathedral Basilica is the left front door closest to Guigues Street and is accessible at the following times: 
    Monday’s @ 11:30 am to 5:00 pm 
    Tuesday’s to Friday’s @10:00 am to 5:00 pm 
    Saturday and Sunday’s for all Masses
