MADISON -- From the Vatican, the Apostolic Penitentiary issued a Plenary Indulgence under the usual conditions for all those who venerate the relics of St. Maria Goretti during the September to November U.S. tour.

The relics of St. Maria Goretti will be in Madison at St. Maria Goretti Church, 5313 Flad Ave., from the morning of Friday, Oct. 16, to the morning of Saturday, Oct. 17.

In addition to veneration of St. Maria Goretti, the decree calls for the usual conditions to be met by pilgrims to gain the indulgence for themselves or for the deceased.

A person must be in the state of grace, make a sacramental Confession, receive the Holy Eucharist, pray for the intentions of the Holy Father, and have the interior disposition of being detached from sin, including venial sin.
