Need a hug right now?  Who doesn’t!  Why not make a hug and send it to someone who needs it!

Include a personal note to your hug-ee.  ????Watch any of the videos below (the first is my favorite) to see how easy it is to do and the many different ways to make a hug.

Be sure to share one of your hugs with the parish so we can send it to our homebound or nursing home parishioners!
