DUE TO RECENT PUBLIC GATHERINGS RESTRICTIONS IMPOSED BY LOCAL GOVERNMENTS, WE HAVE CANCELLED OUR EASTER LILY & PALM CROSS SALE
WE ARE STILL ACCEPTING DONATIONS (ONLINE OR BY MAIL) TO THE FRANCISCAN MONASTERY GARDEN GUILD FOR UPGRADES TO OUR GREENHOUSE (see link in website for general donations)
THERE WILL BE NO Pick-Up of pre-ordered Easter Lilies or Palm Crosses due to the closure of the Franciscan Monastery in keeping with the pandemic guidelines and restrictions. The Garden Guild feels that it is in the public’s best health interests to limit unnecessary travel, and NOT make a trip just to pick-up lilies or palm crosses.
If you have already pre-ordered a lily or palm cross, a member of the Garden Guild will be contacting you regarding your order, and the path forward. If you do not hear from the Garden Guild by April 3, you may contact GardenGuild@gmail.com to inquire. Thank you!
Donated lilies will be placed inside the Franciscan Monastery Church on Easter weekend, and Palm crosses will be lovingly placed in the gardens on Palm Sunday weekend. Your loved ones’ names (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. Please note that there will be no names affixed separately on lilies or palm crosses, as the Garden Guild does not want to jeopardize the health of our volunteers, in keeping with the guidelines of health and government authorities, regarding public gatherings.
Thank you for your support! Be safe. Be well.
