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


God Bless Pope Francis

Blessed Mary Angela, you were moved by the plight of neglected children, women, the sick, the homeless, the aged, the illiterate, immigrants, victims of war, and all who did not know the love and mercy of God, Pray for these people in our world today.

Let us pray: God, our Father, you graced Blessed Mary Angela with a living faith and a boundless love which she manifested in complete surrender to your divine will. By her prayers and witness may we strive to seek, to accept, and to fulfill your will in all circumstances of our lives. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Sonwho lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

(With Ecclesiastical Approval)
