Donation for Altar Flowers

Many people have special days in the year which they commemorate. Flowers on the altar of St. John’s Church can fittingly mark the anniversary of a birth, baptism, confirmation, marriage or death, or may be used as an expression of joy 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 leaflet. Anyone may give flowers at 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 form the altar are given at the discretion of the clergy or sick or shut-in members of the parish. Currently, the suggested donation for Altar Flowers is $100 ($50 for Easter).

Christmas and Easter gifts are used for the flowers and plants which decorate our church on those festivals. During Lent, as there are no flowers on the altar, the rector requests that gifts be designated for an outreach project, for new prayer books or hymnals, or for communion supplies, instead of for flowers. Those being remembered will be listed in the Sunday bulletin, just as they would if the gift were flowers.

If you would like to make an online donation for flowers on a particular Sunday, and/or for Christmas, Easter, or the Thanksgiving Day services, please complete the form below, using Paypal to make your donation. 

Thank you.
