If you plan to attend the Concluding Mass to be led by Pope Francis at Quirino Grandstand on Sunday, here's how to go there and what you should expect.

For those with private vehicles, there will be parking areas at the CCP Complex, Manila Zoo, Rizal Memorial Stadium, and other areas but these are expected to be filled with vehicles.

Eight convergence sites along Taft Avenue, Kalaw Avenue, Katigbak Parkway and other areas have also been identified by organizers.

For those who will commute to Luneta, the best way to reach the site is via the LRT 1.
