Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Basilica of San Albino Invites you to visit the basilica on

The Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

Procession & Vigil begin at 5:30 pm

The faithful who devoutly visit the basilica and within it participate in any sacred rite or at least recite the Lord’s Prayer and the profession of faith may obtain a plenary indulgence under the usual conditions.

A plenary indulgence can be gained only once a day. In order to obtain it, the faithful must, in addition to being in the state of grace, participate in the celebration (Vespers or visit the basilica), must have the interior disposition of complete detachment from sin, even venial sin and:

1*. Have sacramentally confessed their sins;

2*. Receive the Holy Eucharist (it is certainly better to receive it while participating in Holy Mass, but for the indulgence only Holy Communion is required);

3*. Pray for the intentions of the Supreme Pontiff (At least one Our Father and one Hail Mary) while at the basilica.

* Within several days of participating in the celebration.

Catholocism Study Program

Do you feel like you need to understand your faith better? Do you feel like you need to be able to defend your faith?

This is the study for you.

You are invited to join your fellow parishioners for the Catholicism series presented by Bishop Robert Baron. This amazing study will consist of a 12 week course which will focus on the church formed by Jesus Himself, the Roman Catholic faith. You will be transformed when you watch and engage others with the Church’s amazing history, and feel a sense of awe as you experience your own dynamic walk through time.

The weekly study will be offered beginning the Monday after Easter, April 2nd at 6:30 on Monday nights.

Registration will be held in the church office. Please sign up early so we know how many study books we will need to order.

Thank you and I hope you come and bring friends!

The study will be facilitated by Lori Dahlstrom.
