Jubilee Year in Spain for St. Teresa of Avila

In honor of the 400th anniversary of the Beatification of Saint Teresa of Avila, Spain will have a Jubilee Year beginning October 25th, 2014 and running through October 5, 2015, the 500th anniversary of her death.  She was beatified in 1614 and then Canonized in 1622.

Events will likely be made public as the dates near….certainly in Avila but elsewhere in Spain…and other countries….as well.

The faithful will be able to obtain a plenary indulgence according to the usual prescribed conditions of sacramental Confession, receiving Communion, and praying for the intentions of the Pope.

 Details of the churches involved will be announced soon.
