ABLAZE Catholic High School Youth Group delivers love boxes


Teens from the ABLAZE Catholic High School Youth Group in Pagosa Springs are spreading love in and outside the Pagosa Springs community. 

As of Valentine’s Day 2024, the teens have wrapped and delivered more than 90 love boxes.

Senior residents at both BeeHive Homes and Pine Ridge Rehabilitation in Pagosa Springs received love boxes last December. Senior residents at Evenings Porch Assisted Living in Bayfield received their boxes on Valentine’s Day last week.

While the wrapped boxes only measure 1.5 inches by 1.5 inches, the message tied to each ribbon is priceless, as it focuses on hope and love. 

To request a box or learn more about the high school youth group, contact Pope John Paul II Catholic Church at ablazehsyg@ihmjp2.org or visit ihmjp2.org.
