Priests' Communion League

Association of priests founded at Rome in 1906 under the Fathers of the Blessed Sacrament, and elevated to an arch-confraternity by Pope Pius X. Its purpose is to spread the practise of frequent and daily Communion among the faithful. The requirements for entering the league are:

  • to have one's name inscribed on the register of the league
  • to pledge oneself to promote the habit of frequent Communion
  • to subscribe for the magazine Emmanuel edited by the Fathers of the Blessed Sacrament

Special privileges and indulgences are enjoyed by the members of this association, and persons confessing to priests in the league may gain a weekly plenary indulgence provided they communicate very often.
