“Before the Flood”
4-Week Lenten Series
Tuesdays, March 14 - April 4,
7:00 - 9:00 PM, 
Carnevale Center
Inspired by Pope Francis’ 2015 Encyclical on
Climate Change and Inequality: On Care for our 
Common Home, St. Mary’s Franciscan Response
to Fracking and Advocates for Justice are happy to
present this action-oriented 4-week program.
It begins with a feature film on March 14, to be
discussed the following week. Empowering ways to
confront the obstacles to healthy air, food and water
are introduced in a group process which leads to
planning group action in the fourth week.
The NY Times calls Pope Francis’ encyclical “an
urgent call to action.”
Maybe this is your year to get involved!

St. Mary’s is pleased to offer this fun family music class for our youngest parishioners (0-5 years of age). This music education class is faith inclusive and explores music in an interactive and age-appropriate way.

Each class is 45 minutes. 
Limited to 12 children per class.
Classes are on Tuesday at 4:00pm or
