My Friend, Loretta

Seventy years ago, I went to Holy Trinity Elementary School with Loretta. Eight years later, we “graduated” and Loretta moved to Coraopolis, PA to live with the Felician Sisters. Since then, I have seen her dedicate her heart, mind, and spirit to honor God in so many ways. She was a teacher, a principal, and a provincial minister. Whatever leadership role she was given was accepted and addressed with vigor!

We have spoken only a few words in the last several years, but I witnessed a true example of intelligence, humility, and her die-hard commitment to the cause. She is my shining example of sainthood, and it has been my honor to witness her spirituality.

May the Good Lord bless Sr. Mary Christopher Moore for making this a better world!

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.
