St Valentines Day 2017
For almost a decade, the Australian Catholic Marriage & Family Council has produced a printable flyer for use on the Sunday before St Valentine’s Day. This year, The Parish & Marriage Resource Centre is pleased to take up this task.
Why the fuss about St Valentine?
It’s true, St Valentine is a ‘minor’ saint in the Church calendar with a great deal of myth and uncertainty about his life. However no one can deny that his feast day has captured the modern imagination.
This initiative is all about putting the saint back into the feast and using the social interest energy to promote our rich Catholic traditions. It’s an important opportunity to promote the value of Christian marriage in our communities.
We are pleased to provide you with a FREE reproducible handout and slide show for use in your parish services.
