FLOWERS IN CHURCH
At the last meeting of the Parish Church Council meeting it was suggested that members of the Cathedral be given the opportunity to consider the sponsoring of the floral arrangements when they want to do a thanksgiving or a memorial. Should you be interested please fill in your details on the roster at the back of the Cathedral, or call the parish office for more information. The intention is to carry a brief note of acknowledgement (“flowers in lieu of”) in the pew leaflet on occasions when flowers are sponsored.
A reminder to the congregation that the Compassionate Committee is keen to come alongside members who are living through challenging times. If you are in bereavement, or affected by serious illness, or in need of prayer support for whatever reason, the Compassionate Committee members would love to embrace you with their presence and support. Call the parish office of Ms Sangoni (see back of Pew leaflet for phone numbers) for more information.
