Easter Lilies


Beautiful Memories

The Easter Lilies purchased to decorate St Mary’s are not just a symbol of the new life and hope given to us in Christ’s death and resurrection; they can be a tangible and beautiful way of remembering a loved one. There is a tradition in our Church of donations being made in memory of a particular person and the money being used to buy these blooms. A list of those being remembered in this way is placed in the Church over Easter and, seeing the Church filled with these beautiful flowers on Easter Sunday morning is a very satisfying way of marking and sharing the memory of someone who is still loved and missed.

Anyone wishing to make a contribution is asked to place this, together with the name to be inscribed on the List, in an envelope marked Easter Lilies, and hand it to a sidesman or post it to St Mary’s Parish Office, Mill Green, Wargrave RG10 8EU. (Cheques should be made payable to Wargrave with Knowl Hill PCC)
