Indulgences for the 100th Anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions of Our Lady
This year, the Church celebrates the centenary of the apparitions of Our Lady to the three children in Fatima, Portugal. Fr. Fabio De Souza, of Our Lady of Fatima Parish, has an article on the Diocese of Calgary website, that talks of the Indulgence granted by Bishop McGrattan :
“By decree of the Bishop of Calgary and in honour of the Centennial Anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima, the faithful who visit Our Lady of Fatima Church in Calgary and who devotedly pray before the statue of Our Lady of Fatima, invoking her intercession from May 13, 2017 to December 31, 2017 will receive a partial indulgence provided that they are “baptized, not excommunicated, and in the state of grace at least at the end of the prescribed works” [CIC 996 §1].”
The Church of Our Lady of Fatima will hold a mass and rosary the 13th day of each month at 6:30 p.m. After the mass and rosary, the chapel will be open for those desiring to further fulfill the conditions of the plenary indulgence.
