Plenary indulgence at 1st communion

How many souls are still in purgatory, I wonder, because the priest never told his people that they can gain a plenary indulgence under the usual conditions when they make their own first communion and when they piously assist at the first communion of others? (Enchiridion Indulgentiarum Concessio 8.1.1)

(For many years mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.)
