LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)  — In honor of Valentine's Day, the Catholic Action transformed into a fancy restaurant for almost 200 people in need.

It's all thanks to the Lima Drive 7th Day Adventist Church in Lexington, they have prepared a meal and goodie bags for residents of the center, "This is not just serving people with food, but also with entertainment. It's food with the sole purpose of making people feel loved to know they have intrinsic value," said Pastor Winston Taylor.

Ginny Ramsey is the Director of the Catholic Action Center and she says she knows just how much this means to everyone, "Oftentimes reminding people who are experiencing homelessness that they do count, and they can celebrate just as everyone else does. Just because they don't have a home doesn't mean they can't experience the connection of what love brings."
