Holy Mass at Commonwealth Stadium (July 26, 9:15 a.m. MT)
Final block of tickets for the Papal Mass on Tuesday, July 26: Ticketmaster Link
Why the Change from July 18?
We continue to prioritize Indigenous participation at events throughout the Papal Visit. In conversations over the last number of days, many Indigenous partners have requested additional time to secure their reservations. In addition, recent federal funding announcements may allow new groups with a strong desire to participate in the visit of Pope Francis, an opportunity to mobilize.
The delay in releasing the final block of tickets will provide an additional window for Indigenous participation while also ensuring that all available inventory, including any seats not reserved by Indigenous or group partners, will be offered to the public on Friday, July 22, 2022.
For other papal events in Alberta, tickets have been made available to residential/day school survivors, Elders, Knowledge Keepers and those supporting them through National Indigenous Organizations, Catholic dioceses traveling with survivors and other partners. If you are a residential or day school survivor and do not have contact with an Indigenous partner, please refer to www.papalvisit.ca/tickets-access.
You are encouraged to arrive by 8:30 a.m.! Mass will start promptly at 10:15 a.m. Please allow extra time as there will be screening of all guests upon arrival. Because of exceptionally large crowds and heavy expected traffic, Ticketmaster is advising people to arrive by 9:15 a.m. latest to be early enough to get inside for the 10:15 a.m. Mass
ALL TICKETS ARE FREE. DO NOT BUY FROM RESELLERS!
