Easter Lily and Palm Cross Sale is This Weekend

Volunteer to Set-Up on Friday, March 23, 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

Join us at the Portiuncula Chapel, Monastery Conference Center and Gift Shop, if you can volunteer, and help us set up the Easter Lily and Palm Cross sale. We will separate pre-orders and arrange everything so we are ready on Saturday morning.

Sale and Pre-Order Pick-Up, March 24-25

You can pick up your pre-order or stop by to get Easter lilies and palm crosses on Saturday, 9 a.m.–6 p.m., and Sunday, 8 a.m.-3 p.m., in the Portiuncula Chapel and Monastery Conference Center. The cost of each, which benefits the care of the Monastery gardens and our vegetable harvesting and donation program, is $10. The palm crosses are 20″ and perfect to place in your yard or garden.

On Saturday, volunteers also will place donated Palm Crosses in front of each outdoor Station of the Cross and throughout Monastery gardens and grounds. These were donated in honor of loved ones.

Church Decoration, March 31

Join us on Saturday, March 31, 9 a.m.-12 noon, in the Portiuncula Chapel and church as we secure name tags to donated Easter lilies and move them to the church as the friars decorate for Easter.
