I recently remembered that I joined the Rosary Confraternity last December, so now I’m trying to take advantage of the plenary indulgences you get for joining. I have not been forgetting to say my Rosary as I’m required to do, as I usually say it daily and make up any missed days later, I just forgot that I had joined the Confraternity, until I remembered and confirmed by finding an e-mail from last December in my box when the lady was assigning me a join date.
So now I have a question: In addition to being able to get a plenary on various feast days throughout the year, it says I can get a plenary “on the day of enrollment”. Does that mean I can get the plenary every year on my enrollment date?
That would seem to make sense, since most people will not know their exact enrollment date until the certificate comes in the mail. I only knew mine in advance because I asked for a specific date and have the e-mail correspondence with the lady at the Confraternity saying she would assign me that date. People who don’t find out in advance their date won’t know it till the certificate comes in the mail, by which time the original join date will be over, so they can’t take advantage of a plenary when they didn’t know what date it was on. It would make sense if you could just get one on that date every year going forward, presuming of course that you remain a member in good standing and meet the conditions.
Any other Confraternity members who have a thought on this “day of enrollment” plenary? Do you get an indulgence every year on your join date anniversary?
