Special indulgences available in November

Please pray for the faithful departed throughout the month of November and especially on Nov. 2, All Souls Day. The Church gives us ample opportunities on this day to help those suffering in Purgatory. All the baptized faithful in the state of grace can seek to obtain a plenary indulgence for a soul in Purgatory. We would certainly want people to help us through their prayers if we go to Purgatory. And if we help get someone to Heaven, you can be sure that they will help us and pray for us before the Throne of God.

Note: Due to the continued COVID-19 pandemic and concerns over large crowds, the Vatican announced on Oct. 28 that it has again extended the plenary indulgence for the souls in Purgatory to Catholics who visit a cemetery to pray for the dead on any day in the month of November. In a typical year, the Church only grants this plenary indulgence for the souls in Purgatory to those who pray in a cemetery on Nov. 1-8, the week of the Commemoration of All Souls’ Day.
