Tree of Eternal Life

Make a Gift In Memory of A Loved One

During this month of All Souls, have the legacy of a lost loved one live on through our Franciscan Tree of Eternal Life. Our Tree of Eternal Life rests in The Franciscan Peace Garden of St. Francis of Assisi in New York City and is an enduring reminder of our connection to all those we have loved who have gone on before us. The memory and name of your deceased loved one will live on through a gold engraved leaf on the Tree of Eternal Life, and with the prayer and Masses of the Franciscan Friars.
