Fr. Vincent Fortunato and Fr. Francisco Arredondo have been called to Rome by our Holy Father Pope Francis to celebrate the Feast of Mercy. Both of these friars were designated as Ministers of Mercy during the Jubilee Year of Mercy. All those priests and religious throughout the world gathered in Rome to open the Year of Mercy are now once again gathered to reflect on this great gift of God.
