Pope Francis Borderland Visit

February 17, 2016
Ciudad Juarez

Pope Francis will arrive at the Juarez airport on Feb. 17 at approximately 10:30 a.m MST.  From there, he will travel via motorcade to Cereso prison where he will meet and pray with several inmates. 

The Pope’s next expected stop will be Gimnasio De Bachilleres where he will be met by approximately 3,600 business leaders and workers. 

Pope Francis will then travel to the Seminary for a private lunch and rest before celebrating Mass at 4 p.m. at El Punto, a large field near Benito Juarez Stadium.  El Punto holds about 220,000 people and tickets will be provided to parishes on both sides of the border for those who want to attend Mass in Juarez.

The Pope’s travels through the city streets of Juarez will provide an estimated 50 km of opportunity for the faithful to greet His Holiness.
