PILGRIMAGE CHURCH OF THE EASTERN DUPAGE COUNTY
On December 12, our Diocese began the Celebration of the Holy Year of Mercy. At the request of the Holy Father, Catholics around the world will be celebrating a special time of recognition of the Great Mercy of God. A Holy Year features special celebrations of pilgrimages with calls for conversion and repentance. In our Diocese, nine Churches have been designated as Pilgrimage sites. Immaculate Conception is the Pilgrimage Church for the Eastern DuPage Deanery.
Holy Doors are available at the Cathedral of St. Raymond.
It is possible to obtain a plenary indulgence during this Holy Year.
An indulgence is the remission in the eyes of God of the temporal punishment due to sins, the guilt of which has been absolved through the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The Christian faithful who are rightly disposed and observe the definite, prescribed conditions gain this remission through the effective assistance of the Church. A plenary indulgence frees a person from all of the temporal punishment due to sins and may be gained only once on any one day.
How can one obtain a plenary indulgence during the Holy Year of Mercy?
Indulgences are only applicable to oneself and to the dead.
By having the intention of acquiring the indulgence – while also having the interior disposition of complete detachment from sin, even venial sin; going to confession (before or after the visit); receiving Holy communion; making a profession of faith; praying for the Holy Father and for the intentions that he bears in his heart for the good of the Church and of the entire world while doing any of the following: The faithful; by visiting one of the diocesan pilgrimage churches; The sick and people who are elderly and alone: by receiving Holy Communion or attending Holy Mass and community prayer (even through the various means of communication); Those who are incarcerated: by visiting the chapel in the prison; The faithful: by personally performing one or more of the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy. The faithful by remembering the deceased at Holy Mass and praying that they be freed from every remnant of fault and thus be embraced by God in the blessedness of life eternal.

As part of the Jubilee Year of Mercy, Immaculate Conception parish is one of the “Pilgrimage Churches” in the Diocese of Joliet. In celebration, we will open our IC Church to pilgrims from the parish and around the diocese each Saturday from 9 AM to 11 AM beginning on Saturday February 13 through November 26, 2016.
