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 to 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. (Please remember that there are no flowers on the altar during Lent.)
