Feast Day of St. Clare

St. Clare of Assisi, deeply influenced by St. Francis, refused the marriage her wealthy parents intended for her and founded the order of Poor Clares, in the "privilege of perfect poverty." Many women joined her, including her mother and sister. She died on August 11, 1253.

Advent

The Advent season is a time of preparation that directs our hearts and minds to Christ's second coming at the end of time and to the anniversary of Our Lord's birth on Christmas.

Feast Day of Our Lady of Hope

Our Lady of Pontmain, also known as Our Lady of Hope, is the title given to the Virgin Mary following her apparition at Pontmain, France on January 17, 1871 When they formed their North American Province in 2008, the Felician Sister chose Our Lady of Hope as their patron.

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.
