I can't make the Saturday train ride but would like to come to the Abbey on Sunday. Will we be car-pooling there too? I know where the Grotto is! ;-)

Thanks Sandra! Disregard the reply email I sent you. You forgot to put a time, but I see it here now. See you then.

I have my ticket. However, my the time I got around to purchase it, it was full. So, I will be on the upper dome. I'm in for carpooling, if possible. I just need to know where to meet for Saturday. Y'all can "inbox" me for a carpool location, etc. Thanks!
