Our Lady of Fatima – Plenary Indulgence
A plenary indulgence will be granted to those faithful who visit with devotion a statue of Our Lady of Fatima solemnly exposed for public veneration in church during the days of the anniversary of the apparitions, the 13th of each month from May to October 2017. On Sunday, August 13th, our parishioners will have the opportunity to satisfy this portion of the requirement for the indulgence. A statue of Our Lady of Fatima will be solemnly exposed for public veneration after all four Sunday Masses.
To receive the indulgence one must devoutly participate in some celebration or prayer in honor of the Virgin Mary which will be held after each Mass. During the visit one must also pray an Our Father, recite the Creed and invoke Our Lady of Fatima. The faithful must finally fulfill the ordinary conditions: go to Confession and Communion, be interiorly detached from sin, and pray for the intentions of the Holy Father 20 days before or after the indulgenced act.
