Celebrating Easter with the Flower Communion

For Easter this year, we will celebrate a traditional Flower Communion. Originally created in 1923 by Unitarian minister Norbert Čapek of Prague, Czechoslovakia, the ceremony was introduced to the United States by Rev. Mája Čapek, Norbert’s widow and has been celebrated in Unitarian Universalist Churches throughout the world ever since. Everyone in the congregation is asked to bring a flower. Each person places a flower on the altar or in a shared vase. The congregation and minister bless the flowers, and they’re redistributed. Each person brings home a different flower than the one they brought. All are invited to participate; we will have a few extra flowers for anyone who arrives without one.
