Celebrating the Jubilee Year of Mercy in the Diocese of

Hexham & Newcastle


What is a Jubilee Year?


A Jubilee Year is a special year called by the Church to receive Blessings and pardon from God and the remission of sins.

The Church has called Jubilee years every 25 or 50 years since the year 1300 and has also called special Jubilee Years from time to time.

This year Pope Francis is symbolically calling upon the entire Church to take up his papacy’s central message of compassion and pardon.
