Celebrate St. Valentine’s day, the Catholic way
It’s February, the month of love!
When Valentine’s day is almost here, don’t forget about St. Valentine who started it all.
He is the Patron saint of Love, marriages, engagements, young people, greetings, travelers, bee keepers, people with epilepsy, and numerous churches.
