Buffalo Sisters Send Meals to Front Line Workers

To show their appreciation for frontline workers during the pandemic, Felician Sisters in Buffalo sent dinners to hospital workers.

When the quarantine began, Sr. Paul Marie Baczkowski, local minister at Immaculate Heart of Mary Convent, and Sr. Mary Lorianne Tylczynski, local minister at Blessed Mary Angela Convent, both in Buffalo, New York, wanted to do something for the workers on the front line of the coronavirus pandemic.

Along with the chef from Ilio DiPaolo a restaurant in Blasdell, New York, the sisters had 70 dinners delivered to Mercy Hospital in South Buffalo: chicken, spaghetti, salad and a roll with butter. The sisters received a gracious thank you from Mercy Hospital’s mission coordinator, John Kalinowski, for this generous gift.

In addition to the operation of several ministries of the Felician Sisters of North America in the Buffalo area (Villa Maria College, Sr. Josette Food Pantry and the Response to Love Center), our Sisters serve in pastoral roles in local parishes, in prison ministry at Attica, as educators in local schools and in a myriad of other roles in ministry to their communities. This area also operates an active chapter of the Felician Associates, lay men and women who share in the charism of the Felician Sisters.

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.
