Donations for the Epitafios flowers
Decorating our Church is an important tradition carried through the years by all Orthodox Christians. It helps us to open our hearts, to take part in our Lord’s Passion and rejoice for His Resurrection. Once again, we are asking for your generous donations to adorn our Lord’s Sepulchre with beautiful floral arrangements for the celebration of His Burial.
We all like to lay flowers on the graves of our beloved relatives and friends. Likewise we do the same on the Grave of our Lord Jesus Christ? Please put your donation on the relevant collection box during church services or send a donation via cheque or bank transfer giving as reference “Epitafios Flowers”. Your contribution will be greatly appreciated. For details for donating please see our Donations page.
The church is looking for volunteers to dress the Epitafios with flowers on Great Friday April 30 in the afternoon starting at 2.00. If you can volunteer please give your contact details to a member of the Church Committee.
