New Yorkers clamoring for a view of Pope Francis during his brief visit to the Big Apple now have another shot.

The City of New York announced Tuesday that Francis “will greet thousands of guests in a historic procession through Central Park” on Sept. 25, before heading to celebrate Mass at Madison Square Garden.

The announcement says that tickets will be required and that residents of New York State can enter an online contest to win two, beginning Sept. 3 and closing Sept. 7. Winners will be notified Sept. 10, but event organizers have not said how many tickets are available.

“The procession through Central Park will give thousands of New Yorkers an opportunity to come face to face with Pope Francis,” Mayor Bill de Blasio told the Associated Press. “We are grateful to the archdiocese for their cooperation in giving even more New Yorkers a chance to join in this historic visit.”

Francis is scheduled to spend only about 36 hours in New York, and public events are limited.

While there, he’ll deliver a hotly anticipated speech to the United Nations, attend separate prayer services at St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the 9/11 Memorial, and visit a Catholic school in Harlem.

The Mass at Madison Square Garden is also a ticketed event. but the Archdiocese of New York announced last month that a short motorcade parade would precede Mass.

The motorcade route has not been finalized, but it is expected to begin on streets in the upper to mid 50s and travel south along Fifth Avenue before reaching St. Patrick’s Cathedral between 51st and 50th streets. The archdiocese will distribute tickets to see the motorcade in the coming weeks.

Organizers of the pope’s visit to the US, which in addition to New York includes stops in Washington and Philadelphia, have purposefully limited the number of high-profile public events so as not to detract from the main event, the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia.

There, Francis will give two public appearances: an address to the Festival of Families, expected to draw about 700,000 people, and a public Mass, which could see upwards of 1 million worshippers.
