Mayor Oscar Leeser of EL Paso Texas announced today the itinerary for the El Paso Texas leg of Pope Francis visit.
According to Mayor Leeser at a news conference today at the Catholic Diocese pastoral center, this has been a huge undertaking for the 19th largest city in the U.S. Mayor Lesser emphasized that “Every department head has met regarding the Popes visit and expressed the cities readiness.”
Some 450,000 attendees are expected to witness the Popes first visit to the El Paso-Cd. Juárez area. For those not able to attend the festivities and Mass in Juárez, then the next best thing is to join Pope Francis in El Paso’s Sun Bowl, where his Mass will be simulcast. There will be no Mass and no communion at this venue.
Christian entertainers Tony Melendez and the diocesan choir will perform under the direction of Peter Kolar. Tickets will run $10 for parishioners and $15 for non-parishioners through he University of Texas (UTEP) box office. El Paso’s Sun Metro bus lines will play a large part in the transportation of thousands during the event, but the schedule or routes have not yet been determined. Next Tuesday El Paso’s City Council is scheduled to discuss this topic.
