We made sure to schedule our time so we could attend Saturday evening Mass. Afterwards we took our time to walk around and look at all the artwork. It's just beautiful.

Pat G. No, you do not need a ticket. A collection will be taken up at the Offertory, but it is absolutely voluntary. In short, it would not cost you a penny, unless you want to donate.
