Mission Services Department

The Mission Services Department continues the legacy of compassionate care begun by the Felician Sisters. In that Felician-Franciscan tradition, we serve the whole person - body, mind and spirit - in imitation of our foundress, Blessed Angela Truszkowska. We help ensure that the spiritual and emotional needs of residents/patients, staff and visitors are being addressed, and that the mission, vision and values of Felician Village continue to permeate every aspect of our ministry. Mission Services also directs an Ethics Committee that is available to residents/patients, staff, families and the wider community for consults and ongoing education.

Pastoral Care Team

Our Pastoral Care Team serves as a direct support of attentive listening and encouragement. We do this by accompanying others at the various stages of their respective journeys of life and faith, providing prayerful compassion and personal comfort along the way. The role of the Pastoral Care Team is to provide initial intake visits, sacramental ministry assistance, crisis calls, routine and referral visits, and assistance with funeral arrangements as needed.

Blessed Angela Chapel

Felician Village offers a variety of worship services on campus for men and women of many religious backgrounds, as well as various ecumenical services and programs.
