Over 100k people will congregate to see Pope Francis say public mass on February 5 in Abu Dhabi.
Tickets were free and made available for the public to apply for in January, and as expected, demand exceeded supply.
Tickets were distributed to different parishes, and in Dubai last night the first batch was handed out at St Mary’s Catholic Church to thousands of excited worshippers.
