Altar Flowers - Ministry Opportunity

Some of you might not know that the flowers on the altar are part of the pastoral care ministry at St. Laurence. The flowers are donated by parishioners for different reasons - to remember someone or to remember an occasion in their lives. After the services the flowers are given to two or three people that we are aware are in need or maybe have something to celebrate. The flowers tell them that we as a parish are thinking of them.

We are inviting you to be a part of this ministry by signing up to donate the flowers one Sunday in 2021. The ask is that you donate $60-$70 to cover the cost and the altar guild will purchase and display them in the church. After the services the flowers will be delivered by a parishioner.

If you would like to sign up for one of the available dates below please send an email to [email protected] or call Juley in the office at (604)946-5423. If you have any questions please call Heather at (604) 945-7072.
