Don’t want to fight the crowds in Philadelphia to see Pope Francis? You could get tickets to see his address to Congress on a video feed outside the Capitol.
A limited number of standing room only tickets are available to see Pope Francis’ address to a joint meeting of Congress next Thursday.
There is a catch though. The tickets won’t get you inside to see the Pope, but you will be able to watch the Pope’s address on large screens from the West Front area of the the Capitol building.
Starting today, U.S. Senators Tom Carper and Chris Coons are offering the tickets on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Much like SEPTA passes and tickets to see the Pope in Philadelphia, these tickets are expected to be in high demand.
