Basilica Day Celebration

Anniversary of the Dedication of the Basilica of San Albino

Thursday, November 1, 2018

5:30 pm Vespers in the church and Procession around the plaza

followed by Nachos and Italian Sodas in the hall

Within vespers we will complete the requirements for the indulgence except for communion and confession.

A special privilege is given by the Pope for basilicas. On certain days the faithful who devoutly visit a basilica and within it participate in any sacred rite or at least recite the Lord’s Prayer and the profession of faith can receive a plenary indulgence. The faithful may obtain a plenary indulgence under the usual conditions for indulgences (see below). A plenary indulgence can be gained only once a day.

In order to obtain an indulgence, the faithful must, in addition to being in the state of grace, participate in the celebration (Vespers or at least visit the basilica on one of those special days). The faithful must have the interior disposition of complete detachment from sin, even venial sin.

The usual conditions to receive an indulgence are:

1*. Have sacramentally confessed their sins;

2*. Receive the Holy Eucharist;

3*. Pray for the intentions of the Supreme Pontiff (At least one Our Father and one Hail Mary) while at the basilica.

*Within several days of visiting the basilica on one of these special days.
