THINGS TO LOVE ABOUT ST. DAVID'S
Submit through May 23
During the season of Easter we will be using our various social media platforms to feature staff and parishioners' experiences of Things to Love about St. David’s and we need your help! 

Think of something you love about St. David’s, and then tell us about it! You might make a video of an event, or just one of you talking about something that captures the spirit of St David’s. You might write a poem, prayer or short story; you might create a drawing or some other kind of art piece that represents what you love. It could also be something else entirely! We plan to share a few of these each week throughout the Easter season.
