Flowers at St Anselm’s
The arrangement of flowers in church to the glory of God is an inspiration to worshippers, a social activity and an outlet for artistry. Every week arrangers across the world celebrate their faith through flowers.
Here at St Anselm’s it is no different.
At present we are a small yet dedicated group of ladies who work on a rotation to ensure that our church looks welcoming, beautiful and prayerful with the arrangements of flowers. The rotation works in such a way that one of us will arrange the flowers for two consecutive weekends every 6-8 weeks. That person buys the flowers and creates their own designs for the high altar as well as tidying and maintaining the vases of flowers on the two side altars and around the church.
At Christmas, Easter, the Sacrament of First Holy Communion and other ceremonies throughout the year we come together as a group to prepare the church for these great celebrations.
We are always looking for new members of our group. You do not need to be a florist, just have a love of flowers and the knowledge that it is a very rewarding activity within the parish community. Men and women of any age most welcome
