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.
Come to our General Meeting for BIG NEWS about the greenhouse plus an update on this year’s plans – Saturday, March 10, 9:30-11 a.m. in the St. Bonaventure Meeting Room (near the gift shop). Bring a brunch item to share.
Then, stop by the greenhouse in the afternoon (1-4 p.m.) for our Seed-a-Thon. No experience necessary – just come and enjoy fun and fellowship as we prep for the April 28-29 Annual Plant and Herb Sale.

Easter Lilies and Palm Crosses
Order your Easter lilies and palm crosses (perfect for your garden) now – for yourself, friends, and as a remembrance for loved ones at Easter.
Donated lilies will be placed inside the Franciscan Monastery church and the palm crosses will be lovingly placed in the gardens. Your loved ones (living or deceased) will be remembered in the friars’ prayers throughout Holy Week and the Easter season. And, your support will help us maintain the Monastery’s historic gardens and expand our vegetable donation program for our community in need.
Pre-orders are $9 for lilies and crosses you pick up and $8 for those donated. Use this downloadable form (mail or drop off at the Franciscan Monastery gift shop) or order online here (please use the comment box at checkout to note the names of the loved ones to be put on lilies and on crosses).
After ordering, download this dedication flyer to share your Easter prayers.
