Public Ticketing for Papal Mass at Commonwealth Stadium Opens Wednesday, July 6, 2022

30 June 2022

Appears in: Archdiocesan News

The official program for the Papal Visit to Canada was released on June 23, 2002.

We continue to work with National Indigenous Organizations and other Indigenous partners to prioritize space for residential school survivors, Elders and Knowledge Keepers at papal events.

This work will continue in the days leading up to the arrival of Pope Francis.

On Wednesday, July 6, 2022, public ticketing for Pope Francis’ open air Mass at Commonwealth Stadium will officially open at 10:30 a.m. Mountain Time.

The public can access tickets (free) through the papal visit website: www.papalvisit.ca (English) or www.visitepapale.ca (French), providing a direct link to the Ticketmaster.ca portal.

Additional information regarding participation at other papal events will also be made available next week.

We look forward to welcoming Pope Francis to Canada July 24-29 for his pilgrimage of healing, reconciliation and hope.
