Flower Communion Procession

Sunday, June 3, both servicesBasket of flowers

Flower Communion Sunday is a treasured service closing our church year, celebrating beauty, human uniqueness, diversity, and community. This ritual was originally created by Czech Unitarian Norbert Capek in 1923. Everyone is asked to bring a flower to add to the baskets before the service. During the service, the flowers are brought to the front of the sanctuary in a processional by congregants, with gentle dance and movement. These flowers are blessed, and redistributed. Everyone takes home a different flower than the one they brought.

If you are interested in being a part of the Flower Communion procession during the service to bring the flowers to the front of the church, please contact Melody Moberg in the form below. Processional dancers will meet before church by the entrance to the sanctuary on June 3 at 9:00 am to briefly rehearse for the ritual. This activity is accessible for all ages and abilities.  The procession will be led by Megan Erickson.
