Halcyon Days of High School

As a graduate of Our Lady of the Angels Academy in Enfield, CT, we relished the traditions of our school. The Felicians brought us up from fearful freshmen to fearless seniors in our four years with them. I remember Sr. Pontia, our librarian, being excited to receive Christmas chocolates along with the other more visible faculty members. It was a gift that was received with the most gratitude that I remember to this day. This quiet, serious, and dedicated nun knew that her exceptional efforts were appreciated by the Angelites of OLA.

Sr. Amabilis (pictured), taught us Latin with rigor and enthusiasm. To this day, I am able to recite parts of Caesar’s Gallic Wars.

The faculty showed us the value of our annual retreat in Chapel, the importance of the ceremony for Ring Day, and the tradition of the Daisy Chain as we aspired to graduation. The halcyon days of high school were because of our Felician teachers.

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.
