Petals & Prayers


Our diocese, in cooperation with the Trader Joe’s store located on Niagara Falls Boulevard, delivers bouquets of flowers Monday through Friday to area nursing homes. And when we say deliver bouquets, we mean dozens of them—usually enough for every resident to receive flowers for their room.

And it’s easy!

You sign up for a day convenient for you and commit to picking up the flowers between 9 and 11 am—the earlier the better. Then you simply drive the flowers to a nursing home or assisted living facility in your own community and deliver to the activities director.

That’s it, except for the fact that you will find yourself feeling good and smiling broadly for the rest of the day!

Flowers have been delivered from Lewiston to Buffalo to Orchard Park, East Aurora, Clarence and every in between.
