Last year we were delighted to hear that Pope Francis has decreed 10th December the Feast of Our Lady of Loreto. Pope Francis also announced the Lauretan Jubilee Year from December 2019 to 10th December 2020.  During the Lauretan Jubilee pilgrims may visit the Holy House of Loreto (Santuario della Santa Casa) in Loreto in Italy, and a Jubilee Indulgence may be granted for this pilgrimage. Click here for more details.
