Become a Felician Sister

Women throughout North America are choosing to live lives as Felician Sisters. They are women of all ages, all backgrounds, and all walks of life who share a common bond in their desire to serve God and the Church within this Franciscan community of vowed women religious.

If you are considering life as a Felician Sister, you are considering joining a dynamic, vibrant community of Franciscan women who share a 157-year legacy—a legacy shared with the thousands of Felician Sisters who have come before—of compassionately serving all in need, in lives dedicated to God and the Church. Felician Sisters today continue to make a distinct and tangible difference in the lives of God’s people, serving in diverse and far-reaching ministries throughout North America.

Just as Jesus invited His disciples to come and see, we invite you to come and see if God is calling you to life as a Felician Franciscan Sister.

We invite you to visit the various pages in this section, such as Discernment, or Formation, where you can learn about the process and stages of becoming a Felician Sister. Visit the Vocation Events page to learn more about our upcoming retreats, ministry experiences, and “Come and See” weekends with the Sisters.

We invite you to contact Sister Desire Anne-Marie Findlay, Vocation Outreach Minister, at or (724) 384-5311 if you have questions or would just like to talk about your vocation.
