The mission of the Flower Guild is to beautify the Cathedral, reverently and tastefully, to the glory of God.
The Flower Guild exhibits its flower arrangements on the high altar, the lower altar, the font, Emmanuel Chapel and throughout the Cathedral during the church year except for the season of Lent. Special seasons of celebration, Christmas, and Easter, always show a magnificent display of creative arrangement and new ideas. And, we welcome more thoughts from anyone who might be interested in floral expression.
The Guild maintains no specific operating budget but depends primarily on donations. As such, flower arrangements are generally funded by individuals or families who want to remember or celebrate the relationships they have had with their loved ones.
Throughout the year many of the arrangements each week are seasonal in nature, but specific donations are tailored to requests from individual donors for a particular celebration or remembrance, in keeping with the liturgical season.
The Flower Guild offers a degree of beauty and celebration to our weekly worship times and we welcome anyone who would like to participate in this fun (we will take you twigging) and very satisfying experience. Please call the office to request more information or to volunteer and you will reach the right person.
