World Day of the Poor, 19 November 2017

In cooperation with Pope Francis’ intentions 19 November, we ask that all parishioners bring a non-perishable food item to fill up our St. Vincent de Paul pantry, which is needed especially as we approach the holiday season. World Day of the Poor was established as an initiative rising from the Year of Mercy as a way to encourage encounters, friendship, solidarity and concrete assistance to the poor. Thank you for your generosity.

100th Anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima!

October 10, 2017
10 Oct 2017


100th Anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima! In a continuation of the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima, the Cathedral will have the statue of Our Lady of Fatima displayed for veneration the 12-14th of each month through October.

Plenary Indulgence

This is a great opportunity to obtain the plenary indulgence granted by Pope Francis for the centennial year. There are three ways to obtain the indulgence, detailed in a statement from the Fatima Shrine in Portugal (see below).

To obtain the plenary indulgence, the faithful must also fulfill the ordinary conditions: go to Confession and Communion, be interiorly detached from sin, and pray for the intentions of the Holy Father.

  1. To the faithful who make a pilgrimage to the Fatima Shrine in Portugal and participate in a celebration of prayer dedicated to the Virgin. In addition, the faithful must pray the Our Father, recite the Creed and invoke the Mother of God.
  2. Pray before any statue of Our Lady of Fatima
    To the faithful who visit with devotion a statue of Our Lady of Fatima solemnly exposed for public veneration in any church, oratory or proper place during the days of the anniversary of the apparitions, the 13th of each month from May to October 2017, and there devoutly participate in some celebration or prayer in honor of the Virgin Mary. In addition, the faithful must pray the Our Father, recite the Creed and invoke Our Lady of Fatima.
  3. The elderly and infirm
    To the faithful who, because of age, illness or other serious cause, are unable to get around, may pray in front of a statue of Our Lady of Fatima and must spiritually unite themselves to the jubilee celebrations on the days of the apparitions, the 13th of each month, between May and October 2017. They must also “offer to merciful God with confidence, through Mary, their prayers and sufferings or the sacrifices they make in their own lives.”
