In an ever-changing world, sometimes the only constant seems to be the need for prayer. Our foundress, Blessed Mary Angela, prayed with the hungry and homeless in 19th century Poland. The five Felician Sisters she sent to North America in 1874 prayed with the children of immigrants. Today, Felician Sisters in a wide range of ministries continue to care for and pray with those on the margins of society. Learn more about how Felician prayer can bring hope and healing to a world in need.

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.
