GALLUP, N.M. (AP) - The Diocese of Gallup says it also will be getting tickets to a Papal Mass in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.

Diocese spokeswoman Suzanne Hammons said Wednesday the diocese will get 200 tickets for an open-air Mass scheduled for Wednesday.

Ciudad Juarez, on Mexico’s northern border across from El Paso, Texas, is the last stop in the pope’s schedule 5-day visit to Mexico next week.

Pope Francis is slated to finish his Ciudad Juarez trip with the open-air Mass in a large field near Benito Juarez Stadium in Ciudad Juarez.

The Juarez Catholic Diocese said last week it also has designated 5,000 tickets for the Las Cruces Catholic Diocese and 10,000 for the El Paso Catholic Diocese.
