Pope Francis will celebrate a ninety-minute Mass at Madison Square Garden before a crowd of thousands of worshipers. About 18,000 people are expected to attend the service, which starts around 6 p.m. Friday. According to a report from The New York Times, tickets to the mass, as well as the procession at Central Park were distributed via lottery. Before the Mass begins, the Pope will parade around the arena in a golf cart, and artists including Gloria Estefan, Jennifer Hudson, Harry Connick Jr., Kelli O’Hara and Norm Lewis are slated to perform for the Holy Father.
