Each January our youth group makes homemade valentines. We cut magazine pictures, use paper doilies, stickers, etc. to decorate. We use Bible verses or other quotations for the inside verse. Then we sell them for $1 to parishioners for a Sunday or 2 before Valentine’s day. We encourage parishioners to send them to seniors or shut-ins or to other church or family members nearby. On the Sunday before Valentine’s Day, the youth & I deliver them to the homes. It’s a great way for the youth to become acquainted with the older folks who love to have company. It saves parishioners money and gives them the opportunity to remember someone they may not have otherwise. It’s a wonderful project for many reasons.
