Parish Table Talk

  • Holy Door Passports and More!   We are pleased to provide you printable passports that you can share with your families to invite them to visit our Archdiocesan holy doors during this Year of Mercy.  There are also resources on what to do when visiting a holy door.   You can download and print the passport that directs them to the eight churches designated by Archbishop Lori as special pilgrimage sites. You can print and fold these passports and send them home with children, or direct their parents to the site. For parishes that cannot afford copies, please contact the Division of Catechetical and Pastoral Formation (410-547-5405). We will try to assist you with the printing.   Let us know what you think of these resources!
  • How can Mercy Bring Out the Best in your Marriage?  The USCCB has just reviewed a new book – Intimate Graces – about the Year of Mercy and Marriage.
