Members of the south side Special Religious Education (SPRED) group will be hospitality ministers and liturgy participants.

After the Mass, a Disabilities Awareness Fair will be held in Shafer Hall, which connects to the church. The fair will have an emphasis on resources for people with autism, but will have information from a variety of other areas as well.

St. Michael Parish in Greenfield showing film to raise funds for safe haven for youths

St. Michael Parish in Greenfield is hosting two showings of Restless Heart: The Confessions of St. Augustine at 4:30 p.m. and 7:05 p.m. on March 19 at the Legacy Cinema Theater, 2347 W. Main St., Greenfield. All proceeds will go to The Landing, a safe haven for youths in Greenfield and the surrounding area.

Restless Heart is the story of St. Augustine of Hippo—who pursues fame and fortune without a moral compass—and the changes that occur when events lead him to see the light. It also chronicles the collapse of the Roman world, and how Augustine laid the intellectual foundations of what became Europe.

Tickets are $10, or $8 for students and groups of 10 or more. To purchase tickets, call Legacy Cinema at 317-462-6831. For more information, call 317-318-8411.
