When a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck the already poverty-stricken country of Haiti in January 2010, the Felician Sisters responded. After much prayer and several exploratory trips to assess the needs of the people, the Provincial Council commissioned Sister Marilyn Marie Minter and Sister Mary Inga Borko to establish a Felician mission in Haiti.

In October 2018, Felician Mission: Haiti moved into a newly-constructed mission complex in Jacmel, that serves as a home base for a variety of services, including meals, after school tutoring, social activities, catechetical education, a computer lab, and a mobile clinic.
