Metro-area union members, leaders and allies who want to participate in the upcoming visit by the Pope are invited to attend the 6am Mass at Immaculate Conception (1315 8th Street, NW) next week on Wednesday, September 23. “Wear your union colors!” urges Metro Washington Council President Jos Williams. Stay tuned for more updates/details.
Update: The Mass at Immaculate Conception Church in NW DC is one of a number of local Masses that morning (and the specific one that labor’s invited to), after which participants will be heading to the Ellipse, where the Pope will appear. He is NOT conducting the Mass at Immaculate; he will be conducting the Mass later that day at the shrine at CU, where tickets are required (the Metro Council does not have any).
