Celebrate St. Joseph’s Day with Sister Damien Marie Savino, FSE @ Lowell Campus
Mar 19 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

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.

Banana Peels and Climate Change: A Daily Examen @ St. Robert of Newminster Parish
Mar 21 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

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.

And what about the banana peels?  You’ll just have to come to find out.
