Altar and Church Flower Ministry — Volunteers enhance the beauty of our worship areas with flowers and plants which reflect the current liturgical season.  Flowers may be purchased or arranged by the ministry coordinator(s) with monies donated by families, in memory of loved ones or in recognition of a special occasion.

Coordinator:     Sue Powers (894-6612)

Church Seasonal Environment — Church decorating has always been an important part of liturgical worship.  Having the right environment and atmosphere greatly enhances the celebration of the seasons and the liturgical calendar year.  Through visual and aesthetic colors and symbols, these ministers decorate the church, chapel, narthex and parish hall for the seasons of Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter and Ordinary Time.  Assistance is always needed whether it be with planning, decorating, or helping in any way.
