NEW YORK - SiriusXM announced that it will offer subscribers a chance to win two tickets to see Pope Francis celebrate Mass at Madison Square Garden during his first visit to the United States in September.
Pope Francis will visit Washington DC, New York and Philadelphia from Sept. 22-27. The Holy Father will celebrate mass at iconic Madison Square Garden in New York on Sept. 25 and while tickets to this and other Papal events are free, they are limited in number and in very high demand.
SiriusXM's sweepstakes, which will run until Sept. 9, will give one subscriber and a guest the chance to attend the mass at Madison Square Garden on September 25, and will include airfare from anywhere in the U.S, plus two nights hotel accommodations. Subscribers who have been active since July 21 can go to www.SiriusXM.com/PapalMass for details, Official Rules, and to enter the sweepstakes. No purchase is necessary to enter, and an additional purchase will not increase the chances of winning.
Pope Francis will first visit Washington DC (Sept. 22-24), then New York (Sept. 24-26) and finally Philadelphia (Sept. 26-27).
The Catholic Channel (SiriusXM channel 129) - a collaboration between SiriusXM and the Archdiocese of New York - will feature around-the-clock coverage each day, including live broadcasts of all of the major events during the Pope's visit. The Catholic Channel offers listeners a distinctive and contemporary talk platform that focuses on modern day news and issues from a Catholic perspective.
