The Church teaches us that it is a good and holy thing to pray for one another – both for the living and the dead. Pious works like fasting and almsgiving may also be prayerfully offered to God for our own good and the good of others. Making a Memorial Gift or adorning the sanctuary with flowers is a physical action that gives adoration and praise to God.
Giving Sanctuary Flowers is a prayerful offering that remembers or honors a loved one to the glory of God. During the seasons of Easter, Christmas and Ordinary Time, donations for flower arrangements to offset the costs can be made to remember a loved one. By filling out the Sanctuary Flowers form, you may select an arrangement and placement of flowers within the sanctuary. The arrangement will remain for one week and will be present for all Masses and activities that take place inside the church during that time.
