It is no secret that we are blessed at Holy Comforter to have one of the most gifted and dedicated Flower Ministries enjoyed by any church anywhere. Week after week, month by month, save during the season of Lent, the members of the Ministry create beautiful, seasonally appropriate, and frequently breathtaking arrangements on the retable behind the altar, near the Mary statue, and in the narthex. We are fortunate indeed to have such rich and remarkable gifts among the members of the Flower Ministry.
What might not be as well known is the fact that anyone in the parish can dedicate the flowers on any given Sunday. This offering can be in memory or honor of a loved one; in thanksgiving for a special event such as a birthday or anniversary; to celebrate a joyous occasion or occurrence; or simply to enhance the beauty of the church and support the ministry of the Flower guild. In general, the cost of dedicating flowers averages about $150, but please know that cost should not be an obstacle to dedicating the arrangements: donations both greater and smaller are gratefully accepted.
Floral offering envelopes will be included in our Easter mailing. In the meantime, if you have any questions, a member of the Flower Ministry will be glad to provide answers. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity.
