A plenary indulgence can be gained by the faithful who visit some churches dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Diocese of Cheongju which have a spiritual bond with the Basilica of Saint Mary Major in Rome. This affinity was approved by the Apostolic Penitentiary with a decree of April 20, 2009 (Prot. No. 240/09/I), in response to a request by the priests of the churches dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Diocese of Cheongju.

The designated churches are: Naedeokdong Cathedral, Gamgok Church, Gyohyeon Church, Boeun Church, Bukdaedong Church, Sacred Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church, Jihyeondong Church, Jincheon Church.

Gabriel Chang Bong-hun, Bishop of Cheongju, a plenary indulgence over the next seven years will be granted to the faithful who participate in special devotions on the first Saturday of every month before the statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary on display for public veneration in the Naedeokdong Cathedral. The faithful have only to fulfill the ordinary conditions: Sacrament of Reconciliation, Eucharis, and prayers for the intentions of the Holy Father.
