St. Martinville, La. (KLFY) - More than 300 lectors are taking turns reading the entire Bible in St. Martinville Town Square for the Jubilee of the Word Marathon.
During the Bible marathon, priests like Fr. Michael Champagne, who brought his mobile confessional, will be available for confession. For Catholics who are properly disposed of, Pope Francis has granted a plenary indulgence to those who read or listen to the bible in the square during the event.
If you are not able to make it to the event, the Diocese of Lafayette has a livestream up on its website. This will be going on until Sunday at 4:30 P.M. in St. Martinville.
