Felician Child Care Centers Partner with Livonia Goodfellows

Over 200 toys and 400 pounds of food were donated to aid local families in need.

The Felician-sponsored Montessori Center of Our Lady (MCOL) and St. Mary Child Care Center (SMCCC), both in Livonia, MI, joined forces with Goodfellows this year for the No Child Without a Christmas food and toy drive.

The generosity of staff and families was overwhelming. Karen Mroczka, program director at St. Mary Child Care Center, said, “Even in times of crisis, the donations were more than we could imagine, and they exceeded our expectations. We had so many donations that they were filling up our reception area. Team members made weekly trips for over a month to deliver the donations.”

Together, the two ministries donated more than 200 toys and nearly 400 pounds of food.

The donated items will be given to those families in the local community who are experiencing financial hardships. Karen continued, “Partnering with the Livonia Goodfellows is wonderful because we are doing what we do best – helping families and children.”

Gail C. Jones, business and mission director for SMCCC, reflected, “This is a true testament of our ministries continuing the work of Blessed Mary Angela. Our staff and families are committed to serving where needed and living out the core values of Respect for Human Dignity, Compassion, Transformation, Solidarity with the Poor, and Justice & Peace.”

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.
