Easter Message from Archbishop Schnurr to the Faithful
Archbishop Schnurr has recorded an Easter message to all Catholics in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.
Apostolic Blessing at the end of Easter Sunday Mass
At the end of the 11:00 a.m. Mass on Easter Sunday – which will be livestreamed from St. Peter-in-Chains Cathedral, as well as broadcast on Fox-19 Cincinnati and Sacred Heart Radio – Archbishop Schnurr will impart the Apostolic Blessing, which includes a plenary indulgenceto the faithful of the archdiocese who are either present (which will necessarily be very few) or who join in the Mass through the means of social communication. The typical requirements for a plenary indulgence (see above) apply. The blessing and indulgence will be a great gift to the people of the archdiocese and a reminder of the Church’s desire to readily dispense the mercy of God to all who seek it, especially during these times when ordinary access to the sacraments is difficult or even suspended.
