Posted on Jan 24 , 2017 in Parish News & Updates

On January 21, 2017, the Province of our Lady of the Rosary and the entire Dominican Community of the Parish of Santuario del Sto. Cristo in San Juan City, Philippines, gathered and celebrated the closing of the 800th Jubilee of the Order of Preachers. The simple celebrations started with the recitation of the Holy Rosary, a symbol of communion for the entire Dominican Family in prayer, led by representatives from the Congregation of Religious Missionaries of St. Dominic, Dominican Sisters of Blessed Imelda, Dominican Laity, Dominican Brothers and the Dominican Youth Ministry, 'Kadang Dominiko. After the prayer, a short audio-visual presentation highlighting the Jubilee activities of the community was presented to the body. Special commemorative estampitas were distributed while the report was being played. The youth also presented a dance that recognizes the role of the youth as new evangelizers amidst a prevailing culture of death. The short programme ended with the community singing of the Dominican Jubilee Song.

Closing of the Holy Door

In Misericordiae Vultus (the Bull of Indiction of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy), Pope Francis said that “the practice of pilgrimage has a special place in the Holy Year because it represents the journey each of  us makes in his life. Life itself is a pilgrimage, and the human being is a ‘viator’, a pilgrim traveling along the road, making his way to the desired destination.”
    
On November 20, 2016, Feast of Christ the King, Pope Francis will close the Holy Door at St. Peter’s Basilica officially ending the Jubilee of Mercy.
