The Joyful Garden Tour returns this spring! Our third Joyful Garden Tour will include six private gardens in the McDaniel / Crescent Avenue area, in addition to our beautiful church grounds. There will be artists in the gardens on both days. A party for the sponsors at a private home will precede the tour on Tuesday, May 5. Proceeds will provide vital financial support for the renovation projects currently underway on our historic grounds, as well as new projects.

The garden tour and sponsors' party present great opportunities to get involved with fellow parishioners on exciting and important events in the life of our parish. All are welcome to volunteer - see needed shifts of volunteers below!

Joyful Garden Tour Artwork for Sale!

Silent Auction & Reception Honoring Our Garden Tour Artists

We are grateful to our local artists (many of them gifted parishioners) who volunteered to create fine art in our tour gardens this year. This art has been generously donated by the artists and will be sold via silent auction at a reception on Sunday, May 31. Bidding will close at 12:30 PM.

Artwork will be available for viewing during the week prior to the reception, May 26 - 29 from 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM in Graham Library, 2nd floor of the Parish House. All proceeds from the sale will benefit the Joyful Garden Tour efforts.

Please join us on May 31 to meet the artists and thank them for their generous gifts of time and talent.
