EWING, NJ - U.S. Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman, D-12, announced Friday that tickets to attend a live broadcast of His Holiness Pope Francis’ address to Congress will be made available through a lottery system, according to a press release from her office Friday.
Twelfth District residents interested in watching the address live from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol should visit watsoncoleman.house.gov to enter for a chance to participate in this historic event.
“This is a truly incredible moment in history, and an amazing opportunity to take part in it,” said Watson Coleman. “I’m thrilled to be able to offer this chance to residents of New Jersey’s 12th District.”
Pope Francis will address a joint session of Congress on Sept. 24, marking the first time the head of the Roman Catholic Church has done so.
Tickets will allow visitors access to a standing room only live broadcast of the Pope’s remarks, according to the release.
While the Pope has expressed interest in making an appearance on the West Lawn, tickets do not guarantee the opportunity to see Pope Francis in person, according to the press release.
Entries must be submitted no later than 11:59 p.m.. on Sept. 10.
