Here's how you can watch the Papal Mass online

Organisers said the mass will also be streamed live to all the parishes in the UAE.

If you haven't been able to get tickets for the historic Papal Mass in Abu Dhabi on February 5, there's no need to worry. You can still watch it online.

Earlier, the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation announced a paid holiday for those holding tickets to the mass.

Pope Francis, who arrived in the UAE on Sunday night, is set to hold talks with His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, at the Presidential Palace before attending a private meeting with the Muslim Council of Elders as well as an interfaith conference.
