St. Joseph, or San Giuseppe in Italian, is the patron saint of the family. We celebrate his feast day on March 19, when Italian families create beautifully decorated St. Joseph’s Day altars in their homes and gather together to share traditional St. Joseph Day foods. Gather around a special St. Joseph’s Day altar and learn how to make two classic St. Joseph’s desserts: ricotta-filled sfingis and cream-filled zeppoles. In the spirit of San Giuseppe, everyone will take home some pastries to share with their families.
A group for women focused on health, fertility and strong marriages held the first and third Thursday evening of each month 6:00-7:30 p.m. Lap/nursing children welcome.
Our responses to Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’: Care for our Common Home require both inner growth and outward actions. Explore these connections with us in an evening of reflection presented by the University of Notre Dame’s Dr. Philip Sakimoto and Sister Damien Marie Savino, FSE, Ph.D. Together, they will propose a daily examen of the events of each day and how that might lead to practical steps to increase our personal caring for creation. Dr. Sakimoto is an astrophysicist and and the former Acting Director of NASA’s Space Science Education and Public Outreach Program. Sister Damien Marie Savino is the Dean of Science and Sustainability at Aquinas College.

You may also use additional colors from Kathleen’s bin of acrylic paints, watercolors, conte crayons and graphite pencils. The cost of this workshop is $165.
