Prayer Ministry

Perhaps one of the most powerful ministries happens in the quiet moments.

While prayer is an integral part of the lives of all Felician Sisters, those who are physically unable to participate in external ministries focus their energy and dedicate their days to active prayer for their sisters, the intentions of people who write to them, and the world.

Read “Delivering the Spiritual Energy of Prayer,” that features Sr. Mary Francelita Machina, who prays for many people, including former students.

“Prayer is our full treasure. Whoever prays, receives everything.”

Blessed Mary Angela

We call our sisters who take on this ministry our “powerhouses of prayer” because they have turned their physical energy into spiritual energy.

We receive prayer requests every day, and these intentions are not taken lightly. When people ask for prayers, their names are also said out loud during common morning prayer.

Pray With Us. Hear Felician Sisters, novices and postulants tell what prayer means to them in What is Prayer? Then, learn many types of prayer that will help you grow in your faith.

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.
