Mass followed by Rosary with Petitions and Veneration of the Statue of Our Lady of Fatima in Honor of the 100th Anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions:
Friday, October 13, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. at St. Mary Parish
This will be the last service for the 100th Anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions.
Under the mandate of Pope Francis, the Church’s centennial celebration of the apparitions of Fatima features a special plenary indulgence (the complete remission of all temporal punishment due to sin) from Nov. 27, 2016 to Nov. 26, 2017.
A plenary indulgence can be gained once a day. In order to obtain it, the faithful must, in addition to being in the state of grace: have the interior disposition of complete detachment from sin, even venial sin; have sacramentally confessed their sins; receive the Holy Eucharist (it is certainly better to receive it while participating in Holy Mass, but for the indulgence only Holy Communion is required); and pray for the intentions of the Holy Father.
