Dominican Tertiary Indulgence Reminder

Dominican Tertiaries are reminded that a plenary indulgence may be acquired, provided the usual conditions (confession, Communion and prayer for the intentions of the Supreme Pontiff) are properly fulfilled, who make or renew, at least privately, the promise to faithfully observe the statutes of the Third Order (Lay Fraternity of St. Dominic) on the upcoming Feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary of the Rosary on Wednesday, October 7, 2015.

According to the 1923 "Rule of the Brothers and Sisters of the Secular Third Order of St. Dominic", the Vigil of this feast (October 6) was traditionally a day during which Tertiaries fasted and abstained.

The complete list of days when the plenary indulgence ma
y be obtained, can be found here, at the Australian Province Website.
