The Flowering of the Cross – Easter Sunday

courtney News & Events

The Flowering of the Cross

The flowering of the cross represents the transition from Good Friday to Easter, from meditation on Jesus’ death to joyful celebration of his resurrection. The ceremony transforms a barren cross, a reminder of Jesus’ death, into an Easter symbol.

This year, as you come to Easter Sunday Service, pause by the cross, say a short prayer and add some flowers to it. You can bring flowers from your garden, your favorites that you purchased, or you can place flowers provided by the church.
