Vatican Prayer Vigil and Mass Marking End of Year For Priests Will Air on CatholicTV

On June 10th and June 11th, CatholicTV will air the prayer vigil and Mass from the Vatican marking the end of the Year For Priests.

The prayer vigil and Mass will be viewable at CatholicTV.com and on CatholicTV.

The schedule is as follows (Eastern Time):

June 10-St. Peter’s Square prayer vigil with priests 8 p.m.

June 11-Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus; Mass for the close of the Year for Priests

Noon and 8 p.m.

In May 2009, the Vatican announced that a Plenary Indulgence would be given to priests and faithful who take the necessary steps. Below are the necessary steps for the faithful:

“All truly penitent Christian faithful who, in church or oratory, devotedly attend Holy Mass and offer prayers to Jesus Christ, supreme and eternal Priest, for the priests of the Church, or perform any good work to sanctify and mould them to His Heart, are granted Plenary Indulgence, on the condition that they have expiated their sins through Sacramental Confession and prayed in accordance with the intentions of the Supreme Pontiff. This may be done on the opening and closing days of the Year of Priests, on the 150th anniversary of the death of St. Jean Marie Vianney, on the first Thursday of the month, or on any other day established by the ordinaries of particular places for the good of the faithful.

According the USCCB website, the closing day for the Year For Priests is on June 19, 2010.
