The congregation also prays for those whose memory the Memorial Flowers are given each week. Any parishioner may honor the memory of a loved one who has died by contributing to the Memorial Flower Fund. A contribution to the fund is made for a specific date such as a birthday, anniversary or date of death or in thanksgiving for a life shared with that person. On the Sunday closest to that date, the flowers on the altar are given in memory of your loved one. Each year, the parish office will notify you a month prior to the date you requested. A contribution between $10 and $50 helps to cover the cost of the flowers. You may also contribute to the Perpetual Flower Fund to cover a five to ten year period. Flowers at Christmas and Easter are covered by donations in specifically marked envelopes distributed several weeks before those holidays. If you want to give flowers in memory of someone who has died, please contact Dena Lisle in the parish office. The Memorial Flower Fund puts flowers on the altar each Sunday. It is funded by parishioners and others who wish to have their loved ones remembered in the church.
Flowers are a lovely addition to Sunday services but more importantly they are a great way to remember a loved one. That loved one does not need to have attended St. Peter’s (or even be an Episcopalian).
If you would like to contribute simply send a note to Dena in the parish office noting for Â whom you wish to remember and on which Sunday. The Sunday can be designated by order in the month (e.g. 1st Oct, 3rd Aug or last Mar) or it can be nearest a particular date (e.g. Sunday nearest June 7). It would be helpful if your contribution is included with the note.
Checks should be payable to St Peter’s Church. Although any amount is welcome, a donation of $10-$25 is helpful and greatly appreciated.
Memorial Flower forms can be found on the Usher’s table at the rear of the church and placed in the collection plate or given to any usher.
