Masses for the Indulgence and what ‘Indulgences’ Are (and Aren’t!)

by | Jan 15, 2019 | 2019 Plenary Indulgence, 2019 Walk for Life, Blog, Holy Father, Praise God

Catholics are thrilled at the announced Plenary Indulgences for attendance at Walk for Life West Coast related Masses (as well as the other Indulgence conditions). But just what is an Indulgence and how does it work? Fr. Michael Hurley, OP, pastor of San Francisco’s St. Dominic’s Church (and a long-time Walk veteran himself) explains here.

Here is a partial list of Walk-related Masses that qualify for the Indulgence, and we will add more as we learn of them, but call your own Church to see if they are celebrating a Mass which qualifies:
