Easter Outreach and Flower Offerings

During the Easter Season, we remember the gift Jesus gave us of new life, and we celebrate our blessings. It is also a time of sharing our financial abundance with those in need. It is the tradition of the parish to give the Easter offering for outreach to help those beyond our parish community.

This year, we have received a remarkably generous anonymous pledge to match up to $25,000 in donations. Our Easter offering this spring will be dedicated to addressing issues of hunger among children in the Chicago area through Good News Partners, and to alleviating suffering and need among victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan in March. Please be as generous as possible as we share our gifts with others.

Your Easter Flower Donation supports the Flower Guild and provides the beautiful flowers that grace our church during the Easter Season. Flowers may be given in memory of or thanksgiving for loved ones. To have your name included in the Easter bulletin, please return your flower offering envelope by April 15.

Please look for the special mailing that will arrive in the next week containing envelopes for both Easter and flower donations. In addition, Easter offering envelopes are available in the narthex and parlor.
