Plenary Indulgences

archdiocese year of family and faithTime to ‘fess up!

The trouble makers here at News with a Twist (Susy & LBJ) realize that in this Year of the Faith proclaimed by Pope Benedict that they should seek an indulgence for some of the twisted topics on the show (you know, Playboy Bunnies,etc).

In fact, they’re in luck … and so are all of us sinners! You can come along with Susy & LBJ as they explore the eight wonderful churches appointed by the Archdiocese of New Orleans to be official pilgrimage sites for indulgence.

Seriously, we’ll learn about rich part of church tradition, while helping to get Susy & LBJ out of purgatory a little early.

Mary Queen of Vietnam Church

This is a special year for sinners in the Catholic Church. Besides going to confession, here in New Orleans we can make a plenary indulgence at one of eight holy sites. And since we probably over indulge here on News with a Twist, we decided to visit all eight places.

Photojournalist Alyson Titkemeyer takes us to Mary Queen of Vietnam, a church with a history of standing up for the faith.

The First visit on the plenary indulgence visits is The International Shrine of ST. Jude Our Lady of Guadalupe.
