On Mother’s Day, my team and I were selling balloons and painting faces and hands at the Church of St Mary of the Angels to raise funds for the friar formation fund. What a great day out!
There was a little boy, who was agonizing over which balloon flower to get. He said, “I want to choose the most perfect flower for my mother because she is as beautiful as a rose”. He was such a sweetheart! If I was his mother, my heart would have melted on the spot!
Sales were brisk and we sold out all the balloons that we made by early afternoon.
Thank you to St Mary’s for inviting us to be at your funfair!
A big thanks to all the volunteers who helped to make and sell the balloons! It would not have been possible without your efforts.
