FLOWER GUILD


The Flower Guild was established in 1992.  At that time the Nave was in the part of the church that is now our Parish Hall.  We were locked into using two brass urns and prepared arrangements that were delivered on Friday.  The Flower Guild was formed to allow greater expression in our floral offerings while being a much more cost effective way to operate. Donations at that time were not keeping pace with the cost of using a commercial florist.

Because of preparing and arranging the flowers ourselves, we frequently are able to not only have flowers behind the altar, but also in the Commons, and on the Aumbry table.  We also prepare flowers for weddings, funerals, and parish receptions.

Teams are assigned one Sunday per month.  All special events are assigned by Nancy Ward.  The Flower Guild is open to all interested.

Pictures of some of our arrangements are on this page.  The large arrangement above was for Christmas 2014.  It featured anthuriums, red and white roses, and various gilded dried materials.  Below, Lois and Fran devised two widely different images for spring.  From tropical protea and wax flowers in one arrangement to the asymmetrical grace of the other which mirrored the sweeping arc of our altar cross sculpture.
