Laudato Si’

The phrase Laudato Si’, translated directly as “Praise Be to You,” comes from the Canticle of St. Francis of Assisi, a song of praise to all of creation. It is also the name of Pope Francis’s second encyclical, subtitled “On Care for Our Common Home” and published in 2015. Learn more about Felician Sisters responding to the “cry of the earth” with care, compassion, and solidarity.

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.
