PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Organizers are assuring the masses descending on Philadelphia for Pope Francis’ September visit that they shouldn’t worry about bathrooms.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports more than 3,000 porta-potties and about 350 urinal stalls will be set up for the pope’s arrival, which is expected to draw more than 1 million people.

Organizers say that amounts to about one for every 250 people.

A Royal Flush Inc. is providing the toilets and has many units already stocked in a south Philadelphia shipyard. Hundreds more will be assembled on site to relive crowds on the weekend of Sept. 26-27.

It’s unclear how much they’ll cost.

Francis will visit inmates at a Philadelphia jail, speak on religious freedom and immigration in the shadow of Independence Hall and celebrate Sunday Mass during his visit.
