Memorial Flowers

Each Sunday parishioners are invited to give altar flowers in memory of loved ones or to honor special occasions. Special requests (type and color of flowers, etc) are given to the Flower Guild each week. Cost is $100, or $50.00 if shared by two families. There are separate memorials for Easter and Christmas flowers. For more information or to reserve a week on the flower calendar, contact Ellen Edwards, 596-0734.

Memorial Garden

The Memorial Garden is a permanent place for the ashes of those who made their home among the St. Andrew’s family. Any parishioner or her/his immediate family may be interred in the Memorial Garden. Ashes are interred with the assurance that St. Andrew’s will maintain the site – just to the south of the church – as a place of memorial. A leaf, with the name of the deceased, dates of birth, and death, are placed on the Tree of Remembrance in St. Nicholas Chapel.

The Memorial Garden Committee maintains the Memorial Garden, orders leaves for the Tree of Remembrance and provides a Funeral Customary to assist parishioners and their immediate family with pre-arrangements. For more information contact Bill Wilds, 595-0371, ext. 19 or send an email.

Memorial Committee

The Memorials Committee meets throughout the year to oversee and allocate the funds donated to St. Andrew’s in memory of loved ones and friends. Committee members are appointed by the rector and include one Vestry representative. For more information contact Mary Gibson Waddill, 599-6557.
