After almost 144 years of service in the Diocese of La Crosse, the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Felix of Cantalice, affectionately called the Felician Sisters, closed St. Clare Convent in Polonia this past September and no longer have sisters serving in our diocese. St. Clare Convent became their first place of foundation in the United States when Mother Monica and her sisters came from Poland at the request of Father Joseph Dabrowski, then pastor of Immaculate Conception Parish in Polonia. A great debt of gratitude is owed to the Felician Sisters for their invaluable service, first to the many Polish immigrants and the Winnebago people. Their teaching and pastoral assistance helped set the foundations for the Faith in that region of our diocese. May God reward them!
