I have many wonderful memories of the Felician Sisters. Mainly I would like to acknowledge three sisters who influenced my life and supported me through the years at St. Stanislaus in Amsterdam, New York.

+Sr. Mary Bernice Pikul, who was my principal.

Sr. Mary Edna Korona, who has been a dear friend to me and my family for many years.

Sr. Jeanne Marie Akalski, who was my third grade teacher.

These three women always were, and are, a positive influence in my life who gave constant support and encouragement through their gentle loving ways. For that I am always grateful! Deo Gratias!

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.
