Flowers for Mary

Flowers for Mary

Mary said, "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word." Then the angel departed from her.  - Luke 1:38

Flowers for Mary Ministry

This is a new ministry to honor our Blessed Virgin Mary. We are inviting parishioners to place flowers at the statue of Mary in the sanctuary. We will do this year round except during the Lenten season. While fresh/garden flowers are preferred, silk arrangements are fine and should be place not later than Saturday before Mass on your schedule day. We anticipate the arrangement lasting two weekends so we are requesting two donated bouquets a month. When you bring your bouquet in a container/vase, please place the previous arrangement on the table in the room behind the altar so the container can be picked up. To sign up please fill out the form below or call/text Laurie Assell at (217) 257-7705.
