Thinking outside the chocolate box!
What gift will you bring to your loved one this Valentine’s Day?
How about a gift of your time and attention?
This initiative is inspired by The Joy of Love, a letter from Pope Francis to the world, where he emphasises the fundamental importance of time together and personal communication as foundations for a love that lasts.
So instead of buying a gift for each other, couples commit to time together – a meal, a walk, a remembrance of how we met, and so on.
Given that St. Valentine’s day falls this year on Ash Wednesday this is a good year to think outside the chocolate box!
Watch out for the gift tokens at the local church and in a variety of local shops.
Our St Valentine’s Day Tokens:
1 – A journey down memory lane – taking time to remember how we met
2 – A special meal cooked by me
3 – A technology free evening together
4 – Time together to pray
5 – A hand-in-hand walk together
6 – Loads of tender hugs
7 – A family outing
8 – Praying you find that special someone
