This Sunday is Valentine's Day, so I hope you take a bit of time to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you. I've posted some craft ideas below if you have the time and inclination to craft (with or without your kids) this week.
Lent starts next week on Ash Wednesday. We have an army of volunteers (including Zeke pictured here) loading Lenten Bags and delivering them to every household in the parish. You should receive your bag by the 16th, so keep an eye out for it. They contain everything you need (almost) for a meaningful Lenten journey. You will find your blessed ashes inside the bag, so make sure you have them when you participate in one of the Ash Wednesday watch parties. Check out Mother Brenda's next email for more information.
Wishing you time to listen, love, laugh, and breathe this week!
