Easter Flowers
For some people, Easter is a season to remember those loved ones that have gone before us or to honor those still with us. To help people achieve that, Saint Matthew’s offers the opportunity to donate toward our Easter flowers. Should you wish to make a contribution and/or to designate names of loved ones for special thanksgivings, please contact the church office at 215-646-4092 or email Luray Watkins, parish administrator. Thank you to all who help make decorating the church for Easter possible. (Palm Sunday, April 14th, is the last day to sign up for flower donations.)
