If you are unable to make a pilgrimage up to Portland or Medford, the Apostolic Penitentiary, by special mandate of the Holy Father, willingly grants the [Dominican] Jubilee Year with the attached plenary indulgence, following the usual conditions (sacramental Confession, Eucharistic Communion, and prayer for the intentions of the Supreme Pontiff). Once a day, to be applied to the faithful in purgatory, in a spirit of penance unite themselves in their hearts to the spiritual purpose of the Holy Year of Mercy: a. to the [Dominican] jubilee celebrations (events to be held worldwide in various places from Nov 7, 2015 through January 21, 2017) to which they devoutly participate, b. – in the churches and places of worship of the Dominican family that they will visit on pilgrimage and where they will meditate before the Blessed Sacrament for a suitable period of time; concluding with the Lord’s Prayer, the Creed, the Dominican Jubilee prayer (see below), and the invocation of the Blessed Virgin Mary of the Most Holy Rosary. (during the Dominican Jubilee year). Thus, a pilgrimage (prayerful journey) to St. Thomas More Newman Center chapel wherein the individual, having fulfilled the usual conditions, performs either a or b, above, may gain the indulgence once a day. One could also go on pilgrimage to any other Dominican place of worship, like St. Benedict Lodge in McKenzie Bridge, Oregon, or Holy Rosary Church in Portland, Oregon, or one of the many other ministries from Alaska to Mexico among the various Western states.
