Pope’s Mass Phoenix Park Aug 26th
● Ticket Update
● Some details about the day
● Opening Mass in Cork Cathedral
● Invite to Representative Family

Tickets are expected to be issued this week. Plans to have tickets identified by name of holder have been dropped. The following was sent during the week to coach organisers, it my have information of value to travellers.

As the coach organiser you will receive an email with tickets to print for each person travelling. We understand now that these will not be name specific but each person on each coach will need to have a printed ticket. These tickets will direct you to a colour coded route to walk to Phoenix Park and then into the corral designated to you for the Mass. Each person travelling may bring a fisherman’s chair or stool to give you a seat for the day (seating is not provided in Phoenix Park). If when you are dropped at the coach park you are on a Dublin bus route you may choose to use the bus to get you to the gates of the Phoenix Park - this bus travel is free on the day with your Papal Mass ticket. Please stress to your group that it will be a long day and travel in and out of Dublin will be slow due to the volume of people/vehicles expected. We believe priority on the roads will be given coaches. The time between leaving your coach parking area and your arrival into the Phoenix Park area designated to your group could be up to 2 hours. Coach stops en-route: some parishes have arranged for stops for food while travelling. We suggest food is pre-ordered so that it is ready for you when you arrive at the restaurant. This is to save time on your journey. No times for leaving Dublin can be given for this day due to the large number of people leaving the park at the same time and then all the vehicles leaving Dublin. It is estimated at present that the time for leaving coach parks is 7:00pm

Opening Ceremony for the World Meeting of Families taking place in our Diocese on Tuesday 21st August at 7:30pm in the Cathedral of Ss Mary and Anne, Cork. Please extend an invitation to all your parishioners to join in prayer on this day. Bishop John Buckley will preside and he has invited Mgr Aidan O’Driscoll to preach the homily.

Family representatives
For this ceremony I am asking if your parish would nominate a family (parent/s & child/children; married couple etc…) to represent your parish and receive a WMOF candle on behalf of your parish which they will bring back to the parish church to be lit for the five days of the WMOF as you pray the WMOF prayer after Mass each day.
Please contact Fr Cremin if your family would be interested in representing us.
