"My thought first of all goes to all the faithful who, whether in individual Dioceses or as pilgrims to Rome, will experience the grace of the Jubilee. I wish that the Jubilee Indulgence may reach each one as a genuine experience of Godís mercy, which comes to meet each person in the Face of the Father who welcomes and forgives, forgetting completely the sin committed. " [Pope Francis]
This is the ordinary means (in our diocese) to experience and obtain the Jubilee Year Indulgence:
Provisions have been made by Pope Francis for those unable to visit a Holy Door Pilgramige site to receive the Jubilee Year Indulgence. See his Jubille Year of Mercy Indulgence letter.
HOLY DOOR -- Open: Daily, 6:00 am -> 8:00 pm From: Dec. 20, 2015 to Nov. 20, 2016 (Solemnity of Christ the King)
