Ticket News

If you have been informed that you've gotten tickets to the papal Mass at Nationals Park on April 17, you should receive the actual ticket fairly shortly.

The papal Mass tickets have arrived at the offices of the archdiocese of Washington and will be shipped to parishes and diocese next week, according to
archdiocese spokesperson Susan Gibbs. From there, they will be distributed to individuals.

The archdiocese has set up a wait list site. Gibbs said that so far they have received 1,000 requests at the site for 3,000 tickets.

I just got tickets to welcome the Holy Father at Catholic University. In case there are Catholic Univ. alumni out there who want tickets, you can send a letter to the CUA Alumni Office and ask for them, enclosing a self-addressed stamped envelope. They are on a 'first come, first served' basis. There may be no more tickets left but it's worth a go if you act quickly!

Tickets aside, it's moving to realize the size of the younger and new generation of Catholic Americans. Dubbed the "John Paul II generation", we were lucky enough to have been born during that pope's papacy, and now, we have the rich fortune of maturing with the wisdom of this current pope as well. There are hundreds in Washington, D.C. alone who are ready to welcome the pope here in a few weeks. April 16 is his birthday. As we have cheered him in Rome, I hope we will do with the same heart and spirit here: viva el Papa!
