“The use of living flowers and plants, rather than artificial greens, serves as a reminder of the gift of life God has given to the human community” (K. Doyle)
Thank you so much for offering to donate a floral arrangement to adorn our worship spaces.
The giver of the gift will be acknowledged in the bulletin and an indication will be made whether the flowers are being offered to acknowledge an anniversary, the memory of a deceased person or to pray for a special intention. The notation in the bulletin will read something like this: “Today’s flowers at St. John the Divine have been offered in thanksgiving by the Smith Family for the safe delivery of their first grandchild.” or like this: “Today’s flowers at St. George have been offered in memory of Mary Jones on the fifth anniversary of her death.” Please make sure you use the comment section when you sign up for your weekend to include the information for the notation in the bulletin.
Flowers may be purchased but when seasonally available, we encourage flowers from people’s home gardens, making the connection between our homes to the home of our Family of Parishes.
Flowers ought to be vased and delivered on Friday during office hours or Saturday sometime in the afternoon and prior to the Saturday evening mass. They will remain there until the following week after which time your vase can be picked up from the Main office.
In keeping with the tone of the season, flowers will not be present in the church for Advent or Lent, to emphasize the distinctive character of Christmas and Easter.
To reserve a weekend at either St. George’s or St. John the Divine, please choose the date that works for your family. You will receive an email one week in advance, as a reminder.
Thank you for your consideration and for your engagement in this initiative.
Springbank Catholic Family of Parishes.
Drop off at location during business hours on Friday or Saturday one hour prior to 5 pm Mass
