Every Sunday of the year, except during Lent, parishioners are invited to donate flowers (or greens in Advent) to decorate the church altar. Flowers may be given as a memorial or in celebration of a birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion, which is then recognized in the Sunday bulletin. Because flowers are expensive, we do not have flowers at the altar on Sunday if a donation has not been made.
The standard donation for flowers is $25 and it typically takes two donations to cover the cost of flowers each Sunday. To donate flowers please sign the Altar Flower Chart in the parish hall, fill out the slip of paper you will find there, and put your check to St. Christopher's (marked "Altar Flowers" on the memo line) in the offering plate.
Flowers are arranged most Sundays by Karin Van Dyck who welcomes new members who can fill in when she is away. She will provide training as needed.
