The online guide, which can be found here or on the WMOF website at www.worldmeeting2015.orghttp://www.worldmeeting2015.org/, is a comprehensive online guide for residents of Philadelphia as well as the surrounding counties and states.
The Papal Playbook provides people with a broad overview of information related to the World Meeting of Families Congress and Pope Francis's visit.
The guide includes a complete outline of the event itself, recommendations on how residents can participate, transportation information, special events for residents prior too the pope's arrival, emergency notification information, pet care considerations, city service information, and additional resources to support residents.
