Volunteers in Ministry Reference Form

Felician Volunteers in Mission (VIM) represent the Felician Sisters, the United States and the American people in the countries and communities where they serve abroad and the communities they come from when serving domestically. VIM expects volunteers to conduct themselves at all times in a manner reflecting positively on the Felician Sisters, VIM and the United States. Appropriate volunteer conduct is critical because it is intimately tied to the safety and protection of volunteers and that of the communities and children they serve, as well as the reputation of VIM programs.

Please consider these factors carefully when completing this recommendation. Please include any concerns you have about this applicant working with children or other vulnerable people while in the Felician Volunteers in Mission; their drug or alcohol use; or other information that may inform our assessment of the applicant’s suitability to serve as a volunteer.

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.
