Have a Heart for Gubbio
For the second year, the Sunday school's annual Lenten Outreach Project will benefit the Gubbio Project in the Mission District, and with Ash Wednesday and Valentine's Day both occurring on February 14th, we invite you to pick a Valentine, signed and decorated by a Sunday school student, from the Have a Heart for Gubbio Garland in the Great Room beginning this Sunday, February 11th, and going through Lent. Just this past Advent, St. Mary's provided dozens of warm jackets and stacks of cozy blankets for the unhoused men, women, and children who find respite and support at Gubbio. With spring coming, their pressing need is for basic supplies like socks, hygiene, supplies, underwear, soup and peanut butter. Each Valentine includes a request for an item or two from the list above. Throughout the weeks of Lent, we'll have a heart-festooned collection basket in the narthex where you can drop off items. Thank you in advance for "having a heart for Gubbio" and the unhoused population of our city!
