St. Anne Green Thumb Ministry
The St.Anne Green Thumb Ministry was commissioned last year as a new program of the parish to instill life, colour and vibrancy to our parish grounds. In the first year of the program - last year - more than 15 members of the parish volunteered for the Green Thumb Ministry program and took care of six of our main flower bed areas, adding beauty, colour and personal touch.
We have more flower beds and projects that we’d like to undertake and are now seeking additional volunteers for the current planting season. The primary purpose of this ministry is to add flowers and greenery to our flowerbeds, however if there are other areas you feel you’d like to help with such as tree trimming or other grounds tasks please let us know. If you would like to contribute your talents to the Green Thumb Ministry, please email Trevor at email@example.com.
