Papal Visit

Pope Francis will visit the National September 11 Memorial & Museum on September 25, 2015 to pay his respects to the 2,983 victims of the September 11, 2001 and the February 26, 1993 terror attacks at the World Trade Center. 

A lottery will be held to offer members of the 9/11 Community an opportunity to be on the Memorial for the Pope's arrival and for a very limited number of seats at a Multireligious Meeting for Peace hosted by the New York Archdiocese within the 9/11 Memorial Museum. The lottery will be selected at random and closes on Wednesday, August 5, 2015 at 9:00 a.m. 

You may enter the lottery if you are a 9/11 Family Member, 9/11 Rescue and Recovery Worker, 9/11 Survivor, Lower Manhattan Resident or Business Owner, or Active-Duty First Responder at an agency that lost members in the 9/11 attacks. One entry per person is permitted. If selected, you will be allowed to bring one guest and must provide your guest's name when you are notified. Please note: Your name will be printed on your ticket(s), along with your stakeholder group and you will be asked to provide identification to verify your status. Anyone over the age of 18 must present a government issued photo ID. For security purposes, you may be required to submit additional information for a security check. 

Following the Pope's visit to the Memorial, he will lead the Multireligious Meeting for Peace inside the Museum, gathering with local representatives of the world religions to give a common witness to peace. The program will include an address by the Pope, prayers and meditations from various religious traditions.

                                                                                                              
If you would like to enter the lottery please go to the following link:

“A SUMMER LESSON”

By: Lester Muata Greene, Labor Liaison
