Altar flowers during Lent

As many of you will know, Lent is a solemn and penitential season of the church. As part of the traditions of keeping Lent, the liturgical colour is purple, we don't use the word Alleluia in prayers or hymns, we don't sing or say the Gloria. This year Philippa is reintroducing the tradition of not having flowers at the altar. The purpose of these traditions is so that we notice a shift in our worship, a little more sombre and reflective. 

The decor and colour change allows for a much greater contrast with the joy and excitement of Easter Day.

If folks still want to make donations in memory of loved ones whose anniversaries fall during Lent, these contributions will be used towards the Easter flowers.  Any questions? Ask Philippa!
