Poinsettias for Christmas

Each year, the St. Michael’s Altar Guild decorates the church with white and red poinsettias, given by parishioners in memory of or in thanksgiving for friends and loved ones. After the Christmas season, these beautiful plants are delivered to the sick, the home-bound and bereaved parishioners. Won’t you join us in continuing this tradition? Each tribute is $15. Proceeds go to the Rector’s Discretionary Fund.
