This event will be closed to the public, as the entire complex will go on lockdown while the Pope is present.

Despite the Pope's visit, prison authorities and staff will need to assure there are no disruptions to the daily routine, which includes serving 25,000 meals, and conducting a prisoner count 3-5 times a day.

Pope Francis is not expected to tour the facilities aside from meeting with the selected number of prisoners.
