Want to see Pope Francis historic address before a joint session of Congress in Washington D.C. next week?

Contact Congressman Brad Wenstrup (R-Columbia Tusculum). He is accepting constituent requests for tickets.

To request tickets, visit Wenstrup’s website https://wenstrup.house.gov and click on “Tickets for Pope Francis’ Address to Congress.”

Wenstrup's office will follow up regarding ticket availability.

Pope Francis will address Congress Sept. 24 in the U.S. Capitol Building, the first pope to do so. It will be broadcast live on a jumbotron on the Capitol's West Front.

Each member of Congress has been given a limited number of tickets for the West Front broadcast to share with constituents.

Wenstrup's tickets will only be given to residents of Ohio’s 2nd Congressional District, and will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.

The district stretches along the Ohio River from Cincinnati east to Scioto County. It includes all of Adams, Brown, Clermont, Highland and Pike counties, and parts of Hamilton, Scioto and Ross counties.

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.

Pope Francis, elected in 2013, arrives for his first-ever visit to America. He is scheduled to stop first Washington D.C. on Sept. 22 and then visit New York City and Philadelphia.

He will be the fourth pontiff to visit the U.S.
