The Charism of the Congregation of the Sisters of Saint Felix of Cantalice is to imitate Blessed Mary Angela’s boundless love of God and surrender to God’s Will in compassionate service, total availability, concern for the salvation of all people.


As Felician Franciscan Sisters, called by God, we cooperate with Christ in the spiritual renewal of the world.

a stable love which does not change;
a patient love which can bear everything
a fervent love which never weakens;
a constant love which never falters.

Blessed Mary Angela, Selected Writings III, 134
