During the season of Advent the altar is decorated with greens and no flower memorials are accepted. This presents a grand opportunity to remember your loved ones, celebrate special occasions, or express your thanksgivings by sharing in the floral display for Christmas. Pink forms for this purpose will be available starting Sunday, December 9. The completed forms and accompanying donation should be placed in the alms basin or returned to the church office by Monday, December 17 for inclusion in the Christmas season bulletins.
