REMINDER: Pope Francis LIVE at Klyde Warren Park

PLEASE NOTE: While the Pope in the Park event at Klyde Warren Park will be a joyful celebration of our Holy Father, please be sure to attend Mass at your local parish as the event does not fulfill your Sunday Mass obligation.


Dallas area residents can now be part of the historic visit of Pope Francis to the United States.  A special Pope in the Park LIVE viewing event is planned in Klyde Warren Park in downtown Dallas. The Cathedral of Guadalupe in the Dallas Arts District will host a LIVE simulcast of the popular Pope’s closing Mass in the United States on Sunday, September 27th from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.

All are invited to watch Pope Francis LIVE on big screens in the park as he celebrates Mass and delivers the homily (sermon) at the historic World Meeting of Families (WMOF). The Klyde Warren Park event will begin with a bilingual Praise and Worship concert at 2 p.m. followed by the LIVE simulcast of the Papal Mass in Philadelphia at 3 p.m. and will conclude with a special Blessing of Families imparted by Dallas Bishop Kevin J. Farrell at 5 p.m.

The WMOF began in 1994 in Rome when Saint John Paul II convened the first world-wide gathering of families to discuss the blessings and challenges of living out family life in the world. Every three years since then the WMOF has gathered in different cities to discuss the critical issues that confront the family in modern times.

 All are invited to bring their lawn chairs and blankets to be part of the festive afternoon in the 5.2-acre deck park located over the Woodall Rodgers Freeway between Pearl and St. Paul streets in downtown Dallas.  And, participants are encouraged to wear white or yellow in honor of the Pope.

This special event is free to the public and is sponsored by the Catholic Foundation and the Jethsuby Fund.
