PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Tickets will be available online today for a Pope Francis event at the Independence Mall in Philadelphia.

The pope will be giving a speech on immigration and religious freedom in front of Independence Hall on Sept. 26.

Officials say 10,000 tickets for that event will be available beginning at noon today at the website worldmeeting2015.org/tickets.

The tickets are on a first-come, first-served basis. People will be limited to four tickets each.

Thousands of other tickets are being given out to parishes with large immigrant communities in an effort to assure a diverse audience.

The pope also is scheduled to appear at two events on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway: the Sept. 26 closing festival of the World Meeting of Families and a Sept. 27 celebration of Mass.
