Irene and Milene Dzuik arranged white roses on the High Altar for 1st of May. These were in memory of Dorothy Candy on her birthday.
This basket arrangement [near ramp door entrance on 8th May] was my task at the Chigwell flower arranging workshop
Pentecost [or Whitsunday] this year was celebrated on the 15th May. Pentecost means fifty days. Ascension is forty days after Easter and ten days later it is Pentecost. It is when the eleven remaining disciples received the gift of the Holy Spirit. Traditionally the colour of the flowers in church for this day represent the symbols of the Holy Spirit, they are white [ the dove] and flame colours [tongues of fire] Many thanks to the flower arranging team for decorating the church for this important festival. Also a huge thank you for your generous donations to the flower fund for this occasion.

The Nativity of Saint John The Baptist is the 24th June. He is one of only two Saints [the other being the Virgin Mary] that are celebrated on their birthdays rather than their death. This year the Patronal Festival is on Sunday 26th June. The church will be decorated with lots of flowers for our special day.
To the flower arranging team for all the work that they do.
To the church members for your continued support and kind donations of money for the flower fund.
