For Divine Mercy weekend more holy doors of mercy will be available in the Diocese of Little Rock.
The official Year of Mercy door will be available Saturday, April 2 at Our Lady of Good Counsel Church in Little Rock from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Confessions will be available at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. A special Mass for pilgrims will be celebrated at noon. Tours of the House of Formation will also be given. These pilgrimage days are available on the first Saturday of each month through November.
Bishop Anthony B. Taylor has allowed each deanery in the state to have its own Door of Mercy April 2 only. For those who can’t visit the Little Rock church, these jubilee doors have been temporarily established, said Father John Marconi of Conway, Year of Mercy Committee chairman.
Those passing through the doors and completing the requirements — going to confession, receiving the Eucharist and praying for the pope’s intentions — can receive a plenary indulgence. Deaneries that have announced local Doors of Mercy at press time are:
• West Ozark Deanery: St. Vincent de Paul, Rogers, 8-11 p.m. Saturday
• North Ozark: St. Peter the Fisherman, Mountain Home, 6 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday
• Ouachita Deanery: St. Edward Church, Texarkana, 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Masses and confessions at the top of the hour from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
More than 32 parishes will host holy hours for Divine Mercy Sunday April 3. The holy hour could include praying the Divine Mercy chaplet, adoration, confession, music and Benediction.
