Please visit La Porziuncola Nuova while in San Francisco

On August 2nd of 2008, Pope Benedict XVI’s Papal Decree gave to the Nuova Porziuncola its own “Pardon of San Francisco,” an expanded version of the Pardon of Assisi that Saint Francis received from Pope Honorius III in 1216.

This Papal Decree also makes the Porziuncola Nuova the fifth Holy Place in the world and the first Papally Decreed Holy Place in the United States!
