SOFIA Network:

In lieu of flowers

In lieu of flowers is the expression used to remind one that donations made in memory can substitute flowers to honour the memory of a loved one. You can do this on a personal basis or organize a collection among relatives and friends. We will send a letter of thanks or an email to the family to tell them what gesture of love their donations have been transformed into: vaccinations, books, medical care. Your gesture will be even more appreciated. 

Here are some examples of how your good works (or donations in memory) to SOFIA are transformed into new life.

However, whenever you want to transform it into a prayer for your dead loved ones, we suggest that you request a mass offering in the pages of ‘prayers for the dead’.
For more information, don’t hesitate to contact us.
