VALENTINE'S DAY IS A DAY OF LOVE

The Youth Religious Education Program at St. John of God invites all children of the community and their families to add a special extra Valentine when they are preparing Valentines for their friends and family. Include another card or two (or three) for us to bring to patients at the UCSF Medical Center. Write a short message on them if you want. There will be a basket at the back of the church where you can leave them. The hospital Eucharistic Ministers will take them up to the hospital after Mass on February 14. If you aren’t able to be at Mass on the 14th, bring them on February 7. For any questions, e-mail judithmorrow@pacbell.net
