WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Pope Francis will address Congress on September 24, and Andrew Malcolm, with Congressman Greg Walden’s office, says it will be an historic event. "The visit of Pope Francis to the U.S. Capitol, which is the first time a Pope has ever visited the Capitol and addressed the Congress, will be historic for our nation."
Rep. Walden's office has been allocated a limited number of tickets so that Oregonians can participate in the event. "If you are a resident of the Second Congressional District, in Southern, Central or Eastern Oregon, and are interested in requesting tickets, you can visit Congressman Walden's website," Malcolm says.
Ticket-holders will watch the Pope’s address via a live broadcast in a location on West Front of the U.S. Capitol. You’ll be responsible for your own travel, lodging and other trip expenses.
