The Jubilee Year

At the direction of our bishop, the Very Reverend Steven J. Lopes, all Ordinariate parishes are to celebrate a votive Mass of the Holy Spirit and a solemn Te Deum on Sunday, November 3rd, in honor of the 10th anniversary of the promulgation of Anglicanorum coetibus. This inaugurates a jubilee year for the Ordinariate. A Jubilee indulgence [under the usual conditions] is granted to all the faithful who attend that Mass on that day.
The Jubilee Year for the Ordinariate begins November 3, 2019 and lasts until the patronal Feast of Our Lady of Walsingham on September 27, 2020. A Jubilee is a privileged time to give thanks to God for the graces we have received. A biblical understanding of Jubilee is intimately tied to the experience of God’s mercy. Therefore, it is with great joy that we announce that the Holy Father has granted a Plenary Indulgence for the celebration of the anniversary; this Jubilee indulgence is granted to all who participate at Mass in an Ordinariate community on November 3rd, and on any day throughout the Jubilee year to one who makes a pious visit to the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham in Houston.
