Plenary Indulgence granted to those who visit a Nativity Scene in a Franciscan church

On the occasion of the 800th anniversary of St. Francis and the "Nativity scene of Greccio", the Apostolic Penitentiary granted a plenary indulgence to all the faithful who, from 8 December 2023 (Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary) to 2 February 2024 ( Feast of the Presentation in the Temple of Our Lord Jesus Christ) visit a Nativity scene in a church entrusted to Franciscans all over the world.

This applies to all churches staffed by Franciscan friars (OFM, Conventual, Capuchin, and Third Order Regular) as well as chapels of Franciscan sisters and brothers. Faithful who are not able to physically visit the church due to age or handicap may also gain the indulgence.
