Ministry to the Marginalized & Those Living in Poverty
We minister each day to individuals and families in great need. Our Sisters serve the homeless, women in transition, and others who are marginalized—people that society has seemingly forgotten—with compassion and mercy, a healing presence, spiritual sustenance, and a reminder of God’s unconditional love. In addition to our Felician-sponsored ministries, our Sisters also support regional food pantries, clothing and food drives, various social services, and more.
