Gardening Angels

The Gardening Angels are volunteers who maintain the church garden areas and Columbarium.

For more information, or to volunteer, please contact the parish office.

A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them. ~Liberty Hyde Bailey

Nowhere else in the world was such splendour to behold. The garden was His delight, and He knew that to keep it flourishing, an earthly caretaker was necessary. And so, in His wisdom, God appointed Adam as the gardener (Genesis 2:15).

Lovely flowers and landscaping that catch your eye when you come to St. John Neumann. Father Lewis' hobby has developed into a lovely landscape that has involved and helped many and intends to broaden its scope to a socially responsible site for both feeding body and soul.

Parishioners "adopt" a bed in the parking lot and around the church grounds. They then maintain that plot on their own schedule. Day lilies, bulbs, and seeds are shared among the members and from the Prayerful Hands garden.

Periodic "work days" occur when the rest of the parish is invited to come help with large projects and once a year in the Columbarium. These are usually fun days for all with much satisfaction of a job well done that can be enjoyed throughout the year.

For more information, or to volunteer, please contact the parish office.
