Jubilee Year of Mercy:
A re-awakening for all Christians

ORP has been officially charged by the Vatican as the main organizer of logistics during this Jubilee. All pilgrims who wish to cross the Holy Door in St. Peter's will have to register with ORP. We are currently working on creating programs that can help pilgrims to live a spiritual  journey as they visit holy sites in the Eternal City during the Jubilee year (December 2015-November 2016).

We encourage people to live this pilgrimage as a walking prayer, inwardly always connected to our Lord, outwardly active to observe and experience.

Details coming soon in the next weeks.

I am convinced that the whole church—that has much need to receive mercy because we are sinners—will find in this Jubilee the joy to rediscover and render fruitful the mercy of God, with which we are all called to give consolation to every man and woman of our time.

Pope Francis,

March 13, 2015, convoking the Jubilee Year
