    AmP Tip: How to get tickets to see Pope Benedict XVI in April

    This post provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date information on how to get tickets for Pope Benedict XVI's public Masses when he visits the U.S. this April.

    {Last updated Feb. 2 - Arch. of Baltimore}

    There are only three opportunities for the general public to see the Pope, listed here in order of seats available:
    • 1) Yankee Stadium in New York City on Sunday, April 20th ~ 65,000 seats
    • 2) Nationals' Stadium in Washington DC on April 17th ~ 45,000 seats
    • 3) Youth/Seminarians Rally at St. Joseph's Seminary in Yonkers on April 19th ~ unknown

    How do you get a spot? Read on....

    Tickets to Yankee Stadium - Official Website

    • Archdiocese of Boston residents only: 3,000k tickets available - CLICK HERE. Must apply by February 11th @ 5pm, small groups favored. (ph/t: Bettnet)
    • [update] Archdiocese of Baltimore: "very limited number" - CLICK HERE - Tix made available starting Feb. 6th @ 9am; must pay $53 bus fare. Learn more here. (ph/t: WatcheroftheMorn)
    • Diocese of Kansas City/St. Joseph: ~100 tickets - CLICK HERE. Must apply by Feb. 13th @ 5pm. (ph/t: Chad Toney)
    • Archdiocese of Chicago: 100 tickets total to NYC Mass. Pastors have been asked to submit four nominees, then a lotto will take place. Deadline for submission is Feb. 8th. (ph/t: Chicago Tribune)
    • Anyone may apply: ~100 tickets available from the Diocese of Charlotte - CLICK HERE. Must apply by February 6th, 2 ticket maximum. (ph/t: Charlotte Observer, News14)

    Tickets to Youth Gathering in Yonkers - Official Website

    • From the official website: "[tickets] will be distributed to young people, seminarians and individuals in formation for religious life in the Archdiocese of New York through Catholic schools, parish catechetical programs, parish youth groups, Seminaries, etc. Information on tickets for this event will be available in early February."

    General information: Ticket allocations for dioceses outside of the Archdiocese of New York were mailed January 25th. Ticket information for individuals in the Archdiocese of New York will be made available "in early February." In general, tickets will be distributed through your local parish (so if you aren't registered, now would be a good time!). For those outside the Archdiocese, tickets will be distributed through your local Bishop's office. Priority will be given to the archdioceses of Boston, Philadelphia and Louisville, who are celebrating their bicentennials. Links: [Yankee Stadium]

    Tickets to Nationals Stadium - Official Website

    • Archdiocese of Chicago: less than 100 tickets. Pastors have been asked to submit four nominees, then a lotto will take place. Deadline for submission is Feb. 8th. (ph/t: Chicago Tribune)
    • Ticket distribution has not been finalized yet, although "in the past, the custom for major events has been to distribute tickets primarily through ... parishes, dioceses and [Catholic] organizations." Updated info will be made available "by mid-February."
    • Clergy of the Archdiocese of Washington may already register for the Papal Mass here.

    General information: In general it appears that Washington is lagging behind New York in its organization. Mid-Feburary is the presumed date for notices to be sent out. Priority will be given to the archdiocese of Baltimore and the diocese of Arlington. More information, per usual, as I see it. Links: [Washington Nationals Ballpark]

    From what I know, the best way to get tickets is to personally contact your local bishop's office. That way, if the lottery is not made public, you have a better chance of being selected. Prayers help too. It's going to be tight.

    *Please feel free to email me additions & corrections. Thank you.*

    (Also, digging this post will allow other folks interested in this information more easily find it.)
