Family Month – February 2022

When we consider who the people are around us, the first and closest are our FAMILY MEMBERS and the individuals we live with.  We also have the blessing of a CHURCH FAMILY, and the circles our lives interact with “on our block”—our neighbours, people in our schools and workplaces, and the people we see day-to-day in our communities.

Our theme for February 2022 is “Caring for the People Around Us,” and we are extending the challenge to all ages. Let’s find ways to show Christ’s love to our FAMILIES, our CHURCH FAMILY, and the people ON OUR BLOCK!
