The Jubilee Year will begin on December 24, 2024, with the opening of the Holy Door in St. Peter's Basilica and ends the Epiphany of the following year (January 6, 2026).

The other 4 Major Basilicas (all of which are in Rome) will open there doors in the days following. All 5 doors will remain open until the end of the Jubilee when they are once again walled up.
