  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON — Valentine’s Day is about showing those you love just how much you love them. At Saint Francis Xavier church in Mount Washington, it’s a day that allows the younger generation to show its love for the older ones of the church.

    For over 20 years, the middle school classes have worked to bring a homemade meal to the seniors of the church at Thanksgiving.

    Her tone was more serious with middle school students, including a personal note about overcoming obstacles.
