The mission of the Garden and Landscape Ministry is to provide a welcoming environment for worship, prayer and fellowship. This ministry serves the parish by tending to the church, school and rectory garden areas, keeping them neat and attractive through the use of flowers, shrubs and other landscape components. The scope of work is seasonal, normally Spring through fall, and varies from needing a strong back for digging, planting and mulching to lighter duties such as “dead heading,” weeding and watering plants. Meetings are held at the beginning of the gardening season to discuss needs, concerns, and plantings, and then on an “as needed” basis to share ideas to further enhance our garden areas. Commitments are informal, and ministry members provide their own gardening tools. Parishioners and non-parishioners are welcome to spend as little or as much time as they have available. A “green thumb” is not required, but some knowledge of flowers and plants is a plus.
If you enjoy working with many plant varieties and want to connect with your time and talents to this ministry, please contact (Mrs.) Lee Bober, Chairman, at [email protected] or 219-608-1976; or Ann Fletcher, Co-Chairman, at [email protected] or 219-874-4506.
