Our neighbors at the The Franciscan Monastery are hosting their annual Easter Lily and Palm Cross sale on Palm Sunday weekend. The quality of the lilies at this annual event have become well-known, so this is a popular event. Hundreds of lilies and 20″ handmade braided crosses made of fresh palm fronds are available in the monastery’s Portiuncula Chapel today, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sunday, 8 a.m.-3 p.m. All just $9 with proceeds supporting the care and preservation of the historic monastery gardens. The Monastery is located at 1400 Quincy Street NE. For more information call the Franciscan Monastery Garden Guild at (703) 967-0958.
