Tickets available to book for Phoenix Park and Knock Shrine on 25 June!

Please note: If you have already booked your ticket(s) to attend the Phoenix Park Final Mass through the Pastoral Congress Registration you do not need to take any action - your ticket(s) are already secured. Details of your tickets will be sent to you via email before July 31st.

We are delighted to announce that, on Monday 25 June, tickets for the Closing Mass of WMOF2018 and the Papal visit to Knock Shrine will be available for booking on the WMOF2018 website. Tickets are free but you will need a ticket to gain entry. Every adult and every child attending will need a ticket. Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult. All tickets will be for standing sections. Tickets for Phoenix Park will be sent by email in a “print at home” format by 31 July. Tickets for Knock will be posted before the 10th August.

Due to distance and the timing of the two events on Sunday 26 August, it will not be possible for pilgrims to attend both. There will be a capacity of 45,000 for Knock Shrine and 500,000 tickets will be available for the Closing Mass in the Phoenix Park in Dublin.

Sunday 26 August is the final day of WMOF2018, bringing to a close the 9th World Meeting of Families and largest to date. This historic event is open to all and it is expected that many families, parish and diocesan groups will attend and offer support to members of their group with accessibility requirements. An application process is in place for those with accessibility requirements. Please see FAQs for more information.
