Ecumenical Festival of Flowers in Praise.

Added on February 17th, 2011

The 44th Ecumenical Festival of Flowers in Praise was held this year from Saturday February 12 to Tuesday February 15, 2011, in St Pauls Cathedral in the Octagon, Dunedin.

Our Parish contributed an entry created by Lynley Kloogh and Robyn Freeth which featured agapanthus, kangaroo paw, white daisies and knipophia (red hot pokers).

There were many beautiful arrangements on display, as well as floral swags hanging from the pillars, and floral baskets on the end of the pews. The Cathedral makes a lovely setting for this event.

Proceeds went this year to the Otago Rescue Helicopter Trust, who received a donation of $2,000 from the Festival. The theme for 2011 was A beacon whose light must never die (words from the hymn For the might of your arm we bless you, by C.S. Horne), chosen to reflect the mission of the Otago Rescue Helicopter Trust
