Pastoral Ministry

“Pastoring” involves bringing God’s compassion to those in need, guiding people in meeting their spiritual needs through Christ, and helping them recognize and use their gifts to serve others.

As an evangelical community of consecrated women religious, we commit ourselves to the universal mission of the Church. We are diocesan vocation directors, case workers, counselors and youth ministers. We serve on diocesan marriage tribunals, organize retreats, direct youth leadership programs, help facilitate social services and work on diocesan newspapers. In addition, we serve as pastoral associates and in pastoral ministries, helping to prepare for liturgical celebrations, leading sacramental preparation classes, leading adult faith formation classes, and making hospital, prison and home visits. 

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.
