DID YOU KNOW… A Mary Garden, filled with plants named for Our Lady is designed to be a place of beauty that reminds us of Our Lady. It helps one experience God’s creation and invites prayer and contemplation. The St. Mary Garden Ministry already grows over 35 plants named for Mary on our Parish property.
WE WOULD LIKE TO ADD MORE “MARY PLANTS” TO OUR PARISH GARDENS: Madonna Lily (also known as Annunciation Lily or Virgin Lily). The waxy white petals symbolize Our Lady’s bodily purity and the gold anthers symbolize her purity of soul.
Please help The St. Mary Garden Ministry purchase Madonna Lily bulbs ($14.00 each) for our Parish gardens. To thank you for your donation, we will share a lush bouquet of flowers from our Church gardens with you this summer.
Please make your check payable to: St. Mary Garden Ministry. Deliver your check to: St. Mary Church, 126 Herrick Road, Riverside, IL 60546 Attention: St. Mary Garden Ministry
