The text of Fr. Lannon's homily on the Feast of St. Francis is available here. Mass was attended by approximately 125 people and was concelebrated by10 Jesuits.
A luncheon followed the mass. Several organizations across campus donated funds to purchase the food, which was provided by Shadowbrook Farms, a local farm. Members of the Wellness Council made salads and breads and assisted with serving and cleanup. Approximately 70 people attended the luncheon and participated in affinity-group discussions. The topics ranged from “science of climate change” to “public health and the environment” to “waste reduction” and many others. A poster/table display was also available for the community to learn what various groups on campus are doing to support sustainability and the climate action plan.
More information on the 2013 St. Francis Feast Day celebration, including recipes from the luncheon, is available here.
