The Mary Martha Guild welcomes contributions toward the floral designs in the Basilica of Saint Mary. Floral contributions in loving memory of the deceased or in honor of weddings and sacramental celebrations are welcomed as a pious act of charity. Your generous contribution toward altar flowers glorifies God, enhances Masses at our parish and is a continuing act of evangelization to all who visit our historic church.
The Mary Martha Guild coordinates the floral designs for great number and variety of liturgies in the basilica. The Church liturgical calendar is the primary consideration when arrangements are designed for the parish. The Guild works to honor the color and type of floral arrangements requested within the norms provided for the liturgical season and all floral requests for the same day.
To make a one time contribution to the sanctuary flowers, please submit the electronic form and choose one of the payment options below. You will receive a confirmation email and will be contacted by the Mary Martha Guild to coordinate the details of your request.
