Plenary Indulgences extended this November

Dick-Turpins-Grave-5545The Apostolic Penitentiary has this year again extended the November Plenary Indulgences: A Plenary Indulgence for the Holy Souls may be gained under the usual conditions every day in November by a devout visit to a cemetery and prayer for the dead.

A Plenary Indulgence may be gained on one day in November by a pious visit to a church and the recitation of an Our Father and Creed.

The usual conditions to gain a plenary indulgence are Confession, Holy Communion, prayer for the Holy Father’s intentions and detachment from sin.

Amongst the graves in York you could visit to gain the indulgence is that of Dick Turpin in St George's churchyard.
