Many people have significant days in the year, which they memorialize. Flowers on the altar of St. John’s Church can fittingly mark the anniversary of a marriage, death, birth, baptism, confirmation, or may be used as an expression of thanksgiving at any time.
When flowers are given in thanksgiving or as a memorial, a special prayer is offered and an announcement printed in the Sunday bulletin. Anyone may give flowers to St. John’s for any Sunday desired. If more than one gift is received for a Sunday, the additional money is placed in the general Flower Fund. After Sunday services, flowers from the altar are given, at the discretion of the clergy, to sick or shut-in members of the parish. Currently, the suggested donation for Altar Flowers is $75.
Christmas and Easter gifts are used for the flowers and plants, which decorate our church on those festivals. (Please remember that there are no flowers on the altar during Lent.)
