Connect with the Mother of Jesus

Workshop: Mary’s Christmas Flowers
Speakers: Joan Culver & Pat Julian
In medieval times England celebrated our Blessed Mother by naming the flowers they loved in her honor. During the season we wait the birth of Christ, her Son, we have in nature reminders of this miracle: holly, laurel, and evergreens, as well as the flowers amaryllis, Mary’s Rose, jonquil, and Star of Bethlehem. Join us for this special workshop to learn more about these seasonal wonders and bring home a living planter of greens and flowers as a sign of Mary’s presence in your life.
