In September 2017, the Felician Sisters of North America completed a 2MW solar energy project on six sites in five states. To date, the entire array has produced over 7GW of power. Last year, we produced about 15% of all the energy we needed on our properties with solar arrays. By producing our own renewable energy, we have avoided putting 4,177 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.
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.
