Day 6 - Mon, 12/31/18 - Rome

New Year's Eve day started with some much appreciated extra sleep and then a 9am visit to the Catacombs followed by a visit to Sts. Agnes and Phillip Neri and Mass.  We then walked to the Pantheon area for lunch, a walk through of the Pantheon and then Fr. Ray's walking tour, which included some of his favorite churches in Rome.  Dinner was at 7pm, after which we had some time for coffee and some carnival games before a holy hour. fireworks and the walk back to the hotel.

Grace's sister gave her a ring for Christmas and it caused her finger to swell severely.  The owner of a framing shop was able to cut it off.  We returned to thank him with some wine and cake in a box!
