Advent is the period of the 4 weeks before Christmas. Advent means “coming” (Jesus is coming) and it is a season of joy and preparation.

The color for Advent is purple, the color of penance. The color for the 3rd Sunday of Advent is rose — symbolizing joy — and is a day of anticipatory celebration.

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.
