ST. CHRISTOPHER | Youth & Family Ministry
FRIDAY, Feb. 12 – MONDAY, Feb. 15 [11am – 5pm] @ Hearth & Home in Vandalia *Important details below*
We’ve been invited to come to brighten the lives of the residents at Hearth & Home in Vandalia with our snow play, fun, and creations. The residents were SOOOO touched by our youth taking the time to show them so much love through all our little snow creations around their campus. But with the fresh snowfall, much of that was covered and the residents are longing to see again those reminders of hope and love outside of their window. We invite you to come as a family during the long weekend, bring your snow gear and have fun creating something new outside the windows of Hearth & Home. Be sure to take plenty of pictures of what you create and share them on our Parish Facebook/Instagram account. Celebrate this Valentine’s Day sharing some love with our Senior community. 🙂
* MUST call Hearth & Home once you arrive to let them know you are on the grounds for the snow service opportunity. Ask for Cheryl: 937-264-1100
* ONLY build/play in front of the facility or on either side of the facility.
* NO play or building towards the back of the building by the hill…this area is off limits due to the danger the steep hill presents.
* This is a service opportunity, not an event – youth must NOT be dropped off. Families are encouraged to attend and all youth must remain under the supervision of a parent/guardian.

BEYOND HEARTH & HOME: If you know someone who is in ANY nursing home or assisted living center, or someone who is sick and homebound…please consider getting a group of your friends or family together and sharing the love of God through this frigid-yet-fun, no-contact, snow service opportunity… no matter where that may be 🙂
