Flower Guild

The Flower Guild of St. George's Cathedral is an active group of about twenty women and men who have a shared love of working with flowers. The Guild provides a focus for memorials within the Cathedral. Members also maintain the outside gardens and urns.

We work in teams of four with each team taking responsibility for arrangements one Sunday each month.

For the four major liturgical festivals of the church year we all gather to decorate the whole church, each team taking in turn the responsibility for planning and purchasing the flowers for one of these special events.

Donations for memorial flower arrangements for the high altar are a special way to honour the memory of a loved one or to celebrate a special event in their lives, and we greatly appreciate and depend on these contributions.

Our altar flowers are divided into small bouquets on Mondays, and taken to shut-ins and new members.

We have several fund raising events each year. Fundraisers have included fashion shows and bus tours.

Anyone wishing to make a donation for a memorial in remembrance or to celebrate a personal occasion should do so through the Cathedral office at 613-548-4617 or e-mail

Parishioners can also sign the guild calendar at the rear of the church in the date space when they would like to provide flowers.

The Flower Guild welcomes new members!  Novices are most welcome to learn about and enjoy flower arranging.
