FESTIVAL OF FAMILIES
Saturday, September 26, 2015—7:30 PM
Pope Francis will attend the Festival of Families for
approximately 60-90 minutes on Saturday evening at this extraordinary event on the Ben Franklin
Parkway. We expect His Holiness to be with us beginning at 7:30 pm, but that could change slightly. There
will be catechesis, song, dance, and prayer throughout the late afternoon up
until the time when Pope Francis arrives and the more formal program
begins. There will be some reserved seating and standing areas and other
areas open to the public.
Sunday, September 27, 2015 4:00 PM
Pope Francis will celebrate Mass for upward of 1.5 million
people on the Ben Franklin Parkway. The time for the Mass is 4 PM to allow enough of a window for Masses to take
place in the parishes and for our priests to make their way to center city as
well as for Pope Francis to make some other visits in our Archdiocese.
Annunciation BVM Parish will run
buses to the historic visit to Philadelphia by Pope Francis!
Two buses will take people to the Festival of Families Saturday, Sept. 26 and two buses will take
people to the Papal Mass on Sunday, Sept. 27. Both buses will leave from Annunciation
Cost $30 (per seat/per day). This is first come first served
sign up for ABVM parishioners.
So please sign up as soon as possible!
Make checks payable to ABVM Church.
