By January 14, 2016 One Comment

The February Papal visit to Mexico has set off lots of arrangements and preparations.
The Mexican Catholic officials preparing for the Pope’s visit have stated on Tuesdays that anyone planning to attend the Mass or any of the events Pope Francis will need a ticket no exceptions. They also stated that all the tickets are said to be issued free.
“The tickets for different venues are expected to arrive at the Juárez Diocese toward the end of January or by the first week of February at the latest”, Rev. Alejandro Martínez, coordinator of ticket distribution for the diocese said.
“Some people are saying that tickets are already available, but that is false. We also have knowledge that some malicious people are even trying to sell fake ones, but all tickets will be free and none have been printed yet,” he warned.
Rev. Martinez explained that the tickets will be distributed to parishioners in the parishes of the diocese’s 89 parishes, and other dioceses throughout the state of Chihuahua and the other northern states of Mexico, including Coahuila, Sonora, Durango and Tamaulipas.
