Pope Francis' Visit to Washington DC

Sep 14, 2015

Dear Friend,

As you may know, on September 24, 2015, His Holiness Pope Francis will address a Joint Meeting of Congress in the U.S. Capitol beginning at 10:00 AM.  

My office has been provided 50 tickets to this historic event to be allocated through a lottery. These tickets will allow residents of New York’s 12th Congressional District to watch a live broadcast of the Pope’s address from screens set up on the West Front of the Capitol Building. Please note that these tickets are standing room only and will not provide entry to the U.S. House of Representatives chamber, where the speech is taking place, or an opportunity to see the Pope in person.

If you are interesting in requesting a ticket, please click here to be directed to my website or go to www.maloney.house.gov/pope. The deadline to submit a request is 6:00 PM on September 17, 2015, so do not hesitate!

Best wishes,
