In Lieu of Flowers

Sending flowers is a common way to extend comfort to family and friends when a loved one dies. However, more people are asking their loved ones to share a gift with St. Joseph’s Lakota children in place of flowers.

A gift in lieu of flowers:

  • Memorializes a loved one through prayer.

  • Reminds family and friends of your prayerful respect and compassion.

  • Provides for the needs of Lakota (Sioux) youngsters at St. Joseph’s.

When you share a gift with St. Joseph’s Indian School in lieu of flowers, we will:

  • Send a card on your behalf to the loved one's family.

  • Enroll the deceased in our prayer program.

  • Remember your loved one in our monthly Novena.

  • Send a special acknowledgement letter from Fr. Greg

  • Use your gift wisely to provide for the daily needs of the Lakota boys and girls in our care.
