In honor of and in memory of gift opportunities

The Sisters of St. Francis invite you to honor or remember the special people in your life. Your gift in honor or memory of a sister, family member or friend supports the mission and ministries of our sisters.

Franciscan Villa Chapel

Villa Chapel

Franciscan Villa is home to 96 of our sisters in Central New York. At its’ heart is the beautiful Franciscan Villa chapel — where the sisters gather for daily mass, private prayer and reflection, and welcome visitors on special occasions.

Sponsoring a chapel chair is a wonderful way to honor or memorialize a special sister or loved one. Your gift of $300 does more than provide a seat in this sacred space; it supports the retirement needs and community care of our sisters. In appreciation, your kindness will be acknowledged on our chapel donor wall and you will be remembered in our prayers daily.

Path of Life

Path of Life

The Path of Life located next to our regional house in Williamsville, New York is a place of beauty and serenity — a haven for personal prayer. Embedded throughout this pathway are engraved bricks and pavers that serve as a lasting tribute in honor or memory of individuals, families, and special occasions.

Honor an important person or time in your life with an engraved brick or paver on this special pathway. You also can purchase a brick/paver as a holiday or birthday gift for someone special.
