Plenary Indulgence

On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the conversion of St. Ignatius of Loyola and the 400th anniversary of his canonization, the Holy See has granted a plenary indulgence to the faithful who will visit the churches and oratories of the Society of Jesus during this Jubilee Year. This was in response to a request made by Fr. Arturo Sosa, the Father General of the Society of Jesus. This is certainly a piece of good news for us parishioners of St. Ignatius Church.
