Recommended activities for parishes for the 13th day of May-October with Plenary Indulgence

The declaration grants the plenary indulgence almost everywhere under usual conditions, i.e. 1) Sacramental confession, 2) Eucharistic communion, 3) Pray the Creed, 4) Prayer for the intention of the Holy Father. + veneration of an image of Our Lady of Fatima in church or chapel, even for cases where this is not possible (like the sick & those that care for them or other serious circumstances such as seamen at sea, military on duty etc…) praying before a small image (even printed) of our Lady of Fatima. This is to be gained every 13th of the month from May-October.

Parish churches and Public oratories could be encouraged to expose an image of Our Lady of Fatima for veneration the whole day during these dates. Perhaps with an opening Mass and concluding the day with a rosary procession (inside the Church or around church grounds).

As an outreach, parishes could organize teams to take a small image of Our Lady to visit the sick/elderly or those unable to attend. Again these home visits should occur on the 13 from May-Oct. The same could be arranged for jails and rehab centers.

GKK chapels and School chapels could be encouraged also to expose an image of Our Lady of Fatima for veneration the whole day during these dates with an opening recitation of the rosary. Concluding the day with a rosary procession. As an outreach chapels could organize teams to take a small image of Our Lady to visit the sick/elderly or those unable to attend.

N.B. CATECHESIS ON THE FATIMA MESSAGES AND REQUESTS, BY MEANS OF VIDEOS, CONFERENCES, OR OTHER VISUALS, ARE NECESSARY FOR A MEANINGFUL AND FRUITFUL ACTIVITY ON THE JUBILEE YEAR OF FATIMA.
