Jubilee Year 2025





Join us in 2025 for the Year of the Jubilee and walk through The Holy Doors!

As many know, the Jubilee is a special year of grace, in which the Catholic Church offers the faithful the possibility of asking for a plenary indulgence, that is, the remission of sins for themselves or for deceased relatives.

The most exciting and well-known rite is certainly the opening of the Holy Door. This gate is open only during the jubilee year and the 4 main ones are the major basilicas of Rome: St. Peter, Archbasilica of St John Lateran, St. Paul Outside the Walls and St Mary Major. The first to be opened is St. Peter’s Basilica, the other doors are opened in the following days and remain open until the end of the Jubilee when they are once again walled up.
