St. Joseph Healthcare owes its existence to the Felician Sisters of the Enfield, Connecticut Province, who founded the Organization in 1947. The St. Joseph Healthcare ministry is rooted in the tradition of Felician Foundress Blessed Mary Angela’s vision of renewing society through compassionate caring of the whole person in all circumstances.
In 1855 in Warsaw, Poland, Blessed Angela founded the Felician Sisters. The Order thrives today through the thousands of Felician Sisters who carry on Blessed Angela’s tradition of active community service around the world. Today, six Felician Sisters grace St. Joseph Healthcare. The Sisters are a living legacy of Blessed Angela’s vision.
