August 2 – Portiuncula Indulgence 

On August 2, the faithful can receive a plenary indulgence by reciting the Apostle’s Creed and the Our Father inside any Minor Basilica, Cathedral, or parish church (read more about this particular indulgence here). Of course, the usual conditions for an indulgence (confession and detachment from sin, reception of the Eucharist, and prayers for the intentions of the Holy Father), still apply.
