Altar Flowers for 2024

Dates Available:  May 26/Jun 02 | Jun 23/Jun 30 | Sep 15/Sep 21 | Sep 29/Oct 06
The dates above are available for your living or deceased person or a celebration. The cost is $60 for 2 weeks. They are a beautiful gift for the Church. The church is under contract to pay for flowers if no one signs up to provide them. This is not a good deal for al already strapped budget. Please consider reserving one of these dates. When renewing this contract, consideration will be given to whether there is significant interest in continuing this program.

A Message from Our Pastor

Dear Parishioners and Visitors,

Greetings from Orange, Virginia, home of our lovely Catholic Church, St. Isidore the Farmer. Here, we live as a community of faith inspiring and helping each other to draw ever closer to our Lord and Savior. As disciples of our Lord Jesus, we are united as brothers and sisters in the family of God and we joyfully embrace all that our Lord Jesus mercifully revealed to the world through His Apostles and through the Holy Catholic Church which He founded to be our mother and our infallible teacher in matters of faith and morals (cf. Mt 16:13-20, 18:15-18; 28:16-20; Lk 10:16, 22:31-32; Jn 20:21-23; 1 Tim 3:15; Eph 4:1-16).

Here, we faithfully and prayerfully celebrate the Sacraments and especially the Liturgy of the Eucharist with all due reverence and care. If you are ever in Orange, you are most welcome to join us for Mass, or Confession. If you need assistance, or if you would just like to talk to someone about matters of faith or about your life struggles, I would be happy to assist you. I do not pretend to have all the answers, but I do know the One who does!

Your servant in Christ,

Fr. Terry Staples
Pastor
