Flowers on the altar for each worship service are usually donated by a member of the congregation in memory of a loved one or in honor of a special event such as an anniversary, birthday, baptism, or wedding. There is a flower donation chart in the Narthex (“lobby”) of the church where congregation members may sign up for flower donations by date.
Helen Bonaceto is the flower coordinator and orders the weekly flower arrangement from a local florist with instructions from the donor. The florist delivers the flowers to the church; and the donor is billed by the florist and can take the flowers after the second (Contemporary) service to keep or bring to a loved one. Contact Helen Bonaceto about the Flower Memorials.
