Plenary Indulgence Announced for the March for Life
For those pilgrims heading down to Washington, DC for the March for Life, the Church has offered the opportunity to receive a plenary indulgence. It states that an indulgence, “under normal conditions (sacramental Confession, Eucharistic Communion, and prayer for the intentions of the Holy Father) can be gained by the Christian faithful who are truly repentant and compelled by charity, if they take part in the sacred celebrations, with the great assembly of people, throughout the whole annual event called the ‘March for Life,’ which will be celebrated on January 17 and 18 in Washington. The elderly and sick, and all those unable to leave home for a grave cause may still receive the indulgence if they spiritually join themselves to the sacred functions, with their prayers and sorrows or the discomforts of their own lives having been offered to the merciful God.” Check your parish website for confession hours.
