Plenary Indulgence for St Philip's Day

In celebration of the 500th year of our Holy Father's birth, the Apostolic Penitentiary, His Eminence Cardinal Piacenza, has granted a plenary indulgence in all churches of the Congregation of the Oratory for St Philip's Day this year (25th-26th May).

The indulgence may be gained by all the faithful under the usual conditions of sacramental confession, Holy Communion and prayer for the intentions of the Supreme Pontiff. To gain the indulgence, a pilgrimage to our church must be made, or one should take part in a service or devotion in honour of St Philip Neri, concluding by saying the Our Father and Creed and invoking the Blessed Virgin and St Philip.

The indulgence may be applied to the faithful departed.
