In short remarks to begin the Valentine’s Day party, each of  the three Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia  — Jean Befort, Pat McLennon and Ramona Medina — talked about the power of love to bring people together and to build a community of the people who come to the downtown Concordia women’s center.

“We are just a small group,” said Sister Jean, “but by being kind to each other and caring about each other, we demonstrate love.”

Sister Pat said that Valentine’s Day — coming after a long winter when many people start feeling stressed by “cabin fever” — gives everyone the opportunity to love each other as neighbors and to be grateful for each other.

The sisters served special Valentine’s cupcakes and sundaes to celebrate the sweetness of the holiday.

Neighbor to Neighbor is open every weekday  — from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and from 1 to 6 p.m. on Thursday. It’s at 103 E. Sixth St. in downtown Concordia, next to the Catholic Thrift Shop.
