Mission and Vision

Mission Statement:
As Felician Franciscans, called by God, we cooperate with Christ in the spiritual renewal of the world.

Our Felician mission both challenges and encourages us to live the Gospel message—and to live as women of hope in a world so greatly in need of hope.
It is a mission given additional clarity and insight by our Felician vision statement:

Vision Statement:

Turn to the Lord your God
            Accept his unconditional love
Be Eucharist
            Centered in Jesus
            Gift received, Gift given
Be Sister
            Live the Paschal Mystery
            Nurture, encourage, and celebrate
Be Servant
            Faithful daughter of Mary
            And Mother Mary Angela
            Embrace all in Franciscan joy
            Be compassionate and merciful
            Be a prophetic witness to a world in need of healing
            Proclaim the saving presence of God
To All.

Be Eucharist
Be Sister
Be Servant
To all.”

The mission and vision that directed, energized, and sustained the many thousands of Felician Franciscan Sisters before us continues to direct, energize, and sustain us today in our many and varied ministries around the world.

Our Felician mission and vision inform our journey of faith. It is a journey that is continual and timeless, and one that is filled with the courage and conviction of our mission. It is a journey filled with hope and promise—hope for the people and ministries we serve, hope for those we have yet to serve, and hope for the spiritual renewal of the world.
