Pope Francis Will Travel Through Central Park Later This Month


By Geoffrey Croft

Pope Francis is expected to greet thousands of visitors in a historic procession through Central Park on September 25th, the city said in a statement.

Tickets are required for the Central Park Procession which is expected to take place along the park’s West Drive between West 72nd and West 60th streets. 

Event will take place after 5:00pm as the pontiff makes his way from Our Lady Queen of Angels School in East Harlem to Madison Square Garden.   

New York State residents can enter a lottery to receive two (2) tickets via a ticket giveaway contest.  

Space is limited and entrants will be randomly selected to receive tickets. The Central Park Papal Procession ticket giveaway contest will open on September 3rd and close on September 7th. 

Winners will be notified Sept. 10.

This will be Pope Francis' first visit to the United States.

The German-born Pope Benedict XVI visted St. Joseph's School in Yorkville in April 2008.
