Flowers are created by God and they remind us of the everlasting beauty of the love of God to all his people. Thus, we offer these flowers back to God in love and thanksgiving.
At St. Paul’s Anglican Church, we provide opportunity for individuals to offer and dedicate altar flowers for a specific Sunday. You may want to honour the memory of a departed loved one (including all those who are interred in our columbarium), to give thanks for the many blessings you have received in your life, to mark special events in your life, such as a birthday, anniversary or even a birth of a child, and other things/events you may want to lift up to God.
Flowers are placed in the High Altar. Should the High Altar location be taken for that particular Sunday and you prefer to have that same particular Sunday date, then your flowers may be placed at the Lady Chapel, Chancel Rails, or Child Altar (depending on your preference).
If you would like to make a donation towards the flowers on a particular Sunday, please contact Maria Hizon of the Church Office at (604-685-6832 ext 10 or email office(AT)stpaulsanglican.bc.ca to discuss about the availability of the Sunday date you have chosen.
After the availability has been finalized, please provide Maria the following:
1. blurb/wordings or the message for your dedication which will appear in the Announcement & Prayer bulletin for the Sunday you have chosen.
2. any specific flower colour request and we will try to accommodate your colour preference.
If there are numerous donors for a specific Sunday, all dedications will appear in that Sunday’s Announcement & Prayer bulletin. If you want a memento of your Sunday flower dedication, you may request for a copy of your flower dedication that has been placed in the bulletin.
During the Lent, we do not accept any donation towards church flowers.
The recommended minimum amount for the altar flower donation is $50.00. If you are feeling a bit more generous, please feel free to give more. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
