WE COMMIT OURSELVES TO THE MINISTRY OF EVANGELIZATION (Art 51, p.1)

“Give aid to all without exception; your vocation obliges you not to exclude anyone, for everybody is our neighbor.”  (Blessed Mary Angela, Vol. I, 112)

Our Congregation has a history of undertaking the ministry of direct evangelization.  We:

  1. Responded to a call and invitation from the Church to establish missions, which grew in time and became provinces (United States, Canada and Brazil).
  2. Responded to having a Felician presence in new places that continue to grow in Kenya, Estonia, Ukraine, Russia, and Northwest Territory
  3. Responded to the needs of the time until our presence was no longer needed or not able to continue for various reasons (Germany, Mozambique, Mexico)
  4. Responded to individual sister’s requests  to minister in Felician missions of other provinces and participate in mission experiences

Presently, we:

  1. Continue to support missions in Brazil (especially in the Amazon), Kenya, Estonia, Ukraine, Russia and Northwest Territory
  2. Carry out new kinds of “missions” in Kingstree, North Carolina and Pomona, California
  3. Provide mission evangelization experiences in Kamchatka, Kenya, and future plans to Amazon and the Northwest Territory
  4. Educate, engage and encourage Sisters to seek new ways to respond to the contemporary needs for evangelization in the world, such as the refugees in Eilat, Israel.
  5. Consider requests for Felician Franciscan presence and ministry in new territories throughout the world
