RECEIVE PLENARY INDULGENCE DURING THE YEAR OF ST. JOSEPH
Archbishop Schnurr has designated the following parishes to serve as temporary shrines during the Year of St. Joseph: St. Joseph, North Bend; St. Joseph, Dayton; and St. Joseph, Wapakoneta.

A pious visit to one of these churches during this holy year is an occasion for receiving a plenary indulgence for those who recite an Our Father and the Creed, along with fulfillment of the other requirements for obtaining an indulgence (prayer for the intentions of the Holy Father, sacramental confession, and reception of Holy Communion).

Please visit the parishes’ websites to see church visiting hours and any possible devotional activities:
