WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Brad Wenstrup (OH-2) is accepting constituent requests for tickets to Pope Francis’ Congressional Address on Thursday, September 24, 2015, in Washington D.C.
Beginning at 10am, Pope Francis will address a Joint Meeting of Congress in the U.S. Capitol Building. This address will also be broadcast live on a jumbotron on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol. Each Member of Congress has been given a limited number of tickets for the West Front broadcast to share with constituents.
Tickets will only be given to residents of Ohio’s Second District, and will be distributed on a first come, first served basis. While there is no guarantee that the jumbotron will be completely visible to all guests, your ticket will guarantee you a spot on the Capitol lawn for this historic event.
To request tickets, constituents can visit Wenstrup’s website, www.Wenstrup.House.gov, and click on “Tickets for Pope Francis’ Address to Congress.” Upon completing the request form, the office will follow up regarding ticket availability.
For those unable to attend, C-SPAN will broadcast the Pope’s address on live television, as well as online at www.c-span.org.
