|Dear 9/11 Community Member,
I am pleased to share details about Pope Francis’ historic visit to the National September 11 Memorial and Museum on Friday, September 25, 2015. The pontiff’s visit is another powerful example of the global significance placed on coming to this sacred ground.
Pope Francis will first visit the Memorial and pay his respects to the 2,983 victims of the February 26, 1993 and September 11, 2001 terror attacks. The New York Archdiocese will then host a Multireligious Meeting for Peace inside the Museum, led by the Pope with representatives of world religions.
Space for guests on the Memorial and in the Museum during the Pope’s visit will be limited for security reasons. To that end, the 9/11 Memorial is holding a lottery to offer members of the 9/11 community an opportunity to be on the Memorial plaza for the Pope’s historic arrival, as well as for a very limited number of seats for the service hosted by the New York Archdiocese in the Museum.
Information on joining the lottery is below. Participation in the lottery is limited to members of the 9/11 community, including 9/11 and 1993 family members, 9/11 rescue and recovery workers, active duty first responders, 9/11 survivors, and lower Manhattan residents and business owners.
If you enter the lottery, you will be notified if you have been selected by August 21, 2015.
It is also important to note that media outlets are planning a broadcast of the Pope’s visit to the Memorial and Museum. The coverage will be at the discretion of individual networks and local stations, but we anticipate significant media and press interest in the event.
The 9/11 Memorial and Museum is a place for reflection and a symbol for hope, and we look forward to welcoming Pope Francis to this important national tribute.
Joe Daniels,President & CEO
