The altar flowers are a beautiful component during the church seasons. Our flower ministry is 100% contributed by parishioners. These are the following opportunities for you to donate flowers during the year:
Altar Flowers: The chart is in the narthex, with giving envelopes. Each weekly donation is $100 made payable to St. Edward’s with a memo line that reads “Altar Flowers.” Envelopes can be placed in weekly collection plate or dropped by the church office. We can accept up to 2 flower sign-ups per Sunday, so that each donation can be $50.
Place the name “given by” and “in remembrance of” on the flower chart (please write neatly!) and the remembrance(s) will go in the designated Sunday bulletin.
Christmas Flowers: In remembrance of and in thanksgiving for friends, family, and loved ones. Special sign up sheets will be in the Narthex 3 weeks prior to Christmas for sign up. Each designation request is for $10 and there are envelopes for the donation. Please make check payable to St. Edward’s and mark in memo line “Christmas Flowers.” Envelopes can be placed in collection plate or dropped by the church office.
Easter Flowers: In remembrance of and in thanksgiving for friends, family, and loved ones. Special sign up sheets will be in the Narthex 3 weeks prior to Easter for sign up. Each designation request is for $10 and there are envelopes for the donation. Please make check payable to St. Edward’s and mark in memo line “Easter Flowers.” Envelopes can be placed in collection plate or dropped by the church office.
** Note: Advent and Lent we have special arrangements for those seasons, but we encourage giving and your remembrance will be placed in the service bulletin.
We have grocery card programs for Stauffer Kissel Hill and Giant. 5% of each card purchase goes back to the church! It is an easy way to buy groceries and support St. Edward’s. Grocery card orders are placed on the Monday of the last week of each month for delivery on the 1st Sunday of each month (in your parish mailboxes). Cards are placed in envelopes and recipients are asked to remove their cards and place a check back in the envelope, made payable to St. Edward’s with the notation “Grocery Cards” in the memo line. These envelopes can be placed in the offering plate or in the parish secretary’s mailbox. We ask that grocery card participants pay for their cards within the month they receive them. Contact the church office to sign up and/or learn more.
We have a church membership to BJ’s, which, in turn, allows members of St. Edward’s to get a discounted membership for $30/year. If you would like to get a BJ’s membership, please contact the parish office and we can give you a letter to take to their customer service.
