Rep. Schiff Distributes Tickets For Papal Visit to the Capitol

Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. Schiff announced that his office will distribute a select number of tickets for a live telecast on the West Front Lawn outside of the Capitol during the Pope’s speech to a Joint Session on Congress. His Holiness will address both chambers of Congress on September 24, 2015. Limited tickets for the broadcast will be provided to members of the 28th Congressional District, chosen by raffle, to those that fill out and submit this form.

Due to the limited number of tickets our office will distribute, winners may request up to four tickets each.  Tickets must be picked up in person and signed for in our Washington D.C. office, in 2411 Rayburn House Office Building, by 6:00pm on Wednesday, September 23rd.  Pursuant to House rules tickets may not be redistributed or sold for any reason. Rep. Schiff’s office will be unable to mail tickets to constituents or make any other special arrangements. Travel and accommodations will be at the ticket holders expense. Please note that while a clear line-of-sight cannot be guaranteed for all attending the West Front broadcast, the space provides an opportunity for you to be part of the event.

The deadline to enter is Friday, September 11th at 10AM Pacific Time. Those chosen by lottery will be contacted directly with further instructions by the end of the day. For questions regarding the lottery, please contact the DC office at 202-225-4176.
