Catholic Church sets Mass to seek forgiveness of people it hurt

A special ritual during which the Roman Catholic Church will seek forgiveness from people it has hurt will be part of the annual Divine Mercy Sunday Mass celebrated by Archbishop of New Orleans Gregory Aymond. Billed as a historic and important Mass in the life of the local church, the event will be held April 3 at St. Joseph Church, 1802 Tulane Ave.The archbishop will offer “a ritual of forgiveness and resurrection” that “acknowledges that we as individuals, as members of the archdiocese and society as a whole have let people down,” the archdiocese said. “This rite seeks forgiveness and reconciliation with those who have been hurt or alienated by the church either through institutional or individual offenses.”
