On Saturday, August 15th, Bishop Sheridan will ceremonially seal the main gate to the Cathedral Plaza in preparation for the Year of Mercy. We will gather in the plaza at 12:10 pm for the ceremony and process into the Cathedral for the Mass of the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The main gate to the Cathedral Plaza will be the jubilee year Holy Door for the diocese. Holy Doors are sealed shut and only opened during jubilee years, during which pilgrims may pass through the doors to gain a plenary indulgence with the usual conditions. The Holy Door will be opened on December 8th, at 5:00 pm, just before the Mass for the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. This will mark the beginning of the Year of Mercy in our diocese.
St. Mary Catholic Cathedral is a historic downtown parish and the seat of the Diocese of Colorado Springs. We comprise a diverse community of believers committed to serve and welcome all people. We stand for unity in our diversity by expressing our love of God through prayer, worship, and outreach. The Cathedral offers the faithful a rich sacramental life and is a refuge for all who seek solace, peace, and renewal.
