MINISTRIES

Memorial Garden

Adjacent to the church is Mandi’s Garden, and within it the St. Andrew’s Memorial Garden. Dedicated on June 5, 1994, Mandi’s Garden was given as a prayer garden by the Petway family in memory of their daughter Mandi, a former student of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Day School. Soon afterwards, the Memorial Garden Committee was formed, led by key members Mrs. Teddy Moore, Art Paradise and Luther Geer. St. Andrew’s Memorial Garden was dedicated on January 16, 2000. Everyone is invited to visit the Memorial Garden for prayer or meditation. The Memorial Garden Committee ensures that the garden is properly maintained as a peaceful place to rest and pray and that all necessary records are maintained in good order. St. Andrew’s members and former members and their immediate families may reserve spaces for the internment of their cremated remains or memorial spaces in the Memorial Garden. Contact the Parish office at 904-725-6566 for information or if you’d like to volunteer with the garden’s maintenance.

The Order of the Daughters of the King®

The Order of the Daughters of the King® is an order of women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church, or churches in communion with it, or churches who are in the Historic Episcopate. St. Andrew’s chapter is very active. Members undertake a Rule of Life, incorporating the Rule of Prayer and the Rule of Service. By reaffirmation of the promises made at Confirmation, a Daughter pledges herself to a life-long program of prayer, service and evangelism, dedicated to the spread of Christ's Kingdom and the strengthening of the spiritual life of her parish. For more information about Daughters of the King, call 904-725-6566.
