    Morgan & I are attending. Abbeyfest is a wonderful experience. It is outdoors, so be prepared: blanket to sprawl out on, sunscreen, appropriate clothing for weather, snacks, $, rosary, etc. Please pray for a safe trip.

  2. I also am attending. Morgan, Mama T, Britney Johnson, and David Fisher went with us last year and it was a blast. Please pack plenty of sunscreen, hand sanitizer(porto pottys), and a hat for no sunburns. I hope many of you choose to come.

    Yours Always in Love of Christ
