Dear Friends

Happy Valentine's Day

Every Caregiver Is a 'Sweetheart'

Week of February 13, 2017
Prayer Requests

Dear Friends,

On a day dedicated to love, we — on behalf of your care-receiver — want to thank you for being such a... sweetheart!

(We're sorry we can't send you a box of candy, but perhaps the two of you can split a can of chocolate Ensure.)

No matter the particulars of your situation — if, for example, your care-receiver forgets to say "Happy Valentine's Day" to you or, so much harder, has trouble remembering you are his or her longtime Valentine — we can and do send this gift:

 Members of the Friends of St. John the Caregiver
around the world are praying for you
and your care-receiver.
