The Revd Jo Wetherall, Growing Faith Officer at the Diocese of Gloucester and the creator of this project said, “If you want a man of mystery as your Valentine then St Valentine himself is well qualified. We really know very little about him. Was he a doctor, a Christian priest, a Bishop? No one can say for certain, but there must have been something in his nature that captured people’s hearts.
“We all need to know we are loved, especially at the moment. Working together to overcome Covid-19 is hard. Many people are grieving, some exhausted, others frightened or lonely. At the very least we are brought low – ten months in your jogging bottoms can make you feel unlovable.
“The hearts show our ongoing love and support for our keyworkers and our enduring hope.
“Please do share the packs with your worshipping communities and encourage everyone to display the hearts over Valentines Day and the rest of February.”
