Great News! At the request of Archbishop Cordileone and his brother bishops the Vatican has declared an opportunity to obtain a plenary indulgence for those participating in the sacred celebrations related to the Walk for Life West Coast! Pope Francis has also given a Papal Blessing, which will be imparted by Archbishop Cordileone at the Mass in St. Mary’s Cathedral before the Rally and Walk.

The plenary indulgence can be obtained under the usual conditions by people in one of the following three categories:

1) attend the Mass at St. Mary’s Cathedral before the WFL West Coast;

2) attend Mass related to the WFL West Coast in one of the SF Province dioceses (see list below), as well as other WFL related Masses in the parishes of the Archdiocese of San Francisco;

3) those who would like to attend but cannot for some serious reason (e.g., advanced age or illness) and join themselves spiritually to the Mass(es) being celebrated.

Dioceses included are:

San Francisco
Santa Rosa
Salt Lake City
Las Vegas
