22nd May 2016 is 'white flower day', a tradition being rekindled in support of aiding those in need.
With the blessing of His Eminencec Archbishop Mark, children will be making white flowers on the 20th - 22nd May this year. Any money raised will be given to those who suffer. This was originally the idea of the Grand Duchess St Elisabeth and is a custom in the process of being revived.
