Felician Associates Explore the Franciscan Crown

Felician Sisters and Associates in Buffalo join together for a "Franciscan Crown" rosary.

On Sunday, May 5, the Felician Associates of Western New York visited the Sisters of Blessed Mary Angela Convent in Buffalo, NY. Under the guidance of Regional Associate Coordinator Sister Mary Gerard Fredrick, the Associates learned about the Franciscan Crown, a Rosary consisting of seven decades, each representing one of the seven joys of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Images and statues of the Felician Foundress, Blessed Mary Angela Truszkowska, depict a Franciscan Crown Rosary hanging at her side. Sister Gerard brought her Franciscan Crown to the meeting for the Associates to examine, and they each received their own to take home.

The Associates also signed holy cards with an image of St. Felix of Cantalice in preparation for his feast day on May 18. The cards will be distributed to Sisters in the Care Center and in Immaculate Heart of Mary Convent.

Sister Gerard is pleased to see that as the Sisters and Associates spend more time together, they have begun to form special connections and relationships. She also shared that she has been in contact with two new serious inquirers regarding Prayer Associate membership.

Serving where needed since 1874

Founded in Poland in 1855, the Felician Sisters are a congregation of women religious inspired by the spiritual ideals of their foundress, Blessed Mary Angela Truszkowska, and Saints Francis of Assisi, Clare of Assisi and Felix of Cantalice. Arriving in North America in 1874 following Blessed Mary Angela’s directive “to serve where needed,” they helped to weave the social service system. Today, the Felician Sisters founded, sponsor or support through the presence of our sisters, more than 40 ministries – all continuing to evolve to meet the needs of the people they serve.
