The Sisters of St. Felix of Cantalice, or Felician Sisters, are one branch of the Third Order of St. Francis. The active-contemplative order was founded in Warsaw, Poland, in 1843, by Sophia Truszkowska, and named for a shrine of St. Felix, a 16th century Franciscan saint especially devoted to children. The Felician Sisters have always sought to harmonize a deep spiritual and community life with dedication to diverse acts of mercy. In North America, the Felician Sisters have ministered primarily to Polish Americans since their arrival from Poland in 1874. Their Foundress, Mother Mary Angela Truszkowska, was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 1993.
Most Felician Sisters maintain the religious garb of their Foundress, Blessed Mary Angela Truszkowska, consisting of a brown habit (beige during summer months), scapular, (jacket at specified times), headdress, black veil, collar, Felician wooden crucifix suspended on tape or cord, and simple ring received at final profession. This remains a discipline in the Krakow, Przemyśl and Warsaw provinces in Poland, as well as the Livonia and Enfield provinces in North America.
As of the beginning of 2005, there were just under 2,000 professed members of the Felician Sisters.----
McManus Foundation presents $50,000 to Madonna
Bill Harahan, president and CEO of Header Products, presents the check to Sister Rose Marie Kujawa, Madonna University president. On the right is Rod Guest, Header Products controller.
When Bill Harahan's uncle passed away in August of 2010, he proudly took over the family business, Header Products in Romulus. Harahan also vowed to continue his uncle's support of Madonna University, and recently presented President Sister Rose Marie Kujawa with a $50,000 check to help promote the McManus Distinguished Business Lecture Series.
Harahan's uncle Michael McManus Jr., founder of Header Products, loved Madonna University. In 1989, McManus gave the University $100,000 to launch the lecture series in honor of his father Michael McManus Sr., a Detroit entrepreneur who developed the Chicago Rivet and Machine Co.
“My uncle and his long-time friend and financial advisor, Rod Guest, dearly loved Madonna University, and I want to continue the McManus legacy,” said Harahan, at a luncheon with Madonna's president. “I want you to have this gift to help freshen up the lecture series and to get the word out to the community, so that more people can be inspired by the entrepreneurs and business leaders who lecture.”
Sister Rose Marie couldn't thank Harahan and Guest enough. “We deeply appreciate your affinity and support,” she told the two. “The McManus Lecture Series truly enriches our students' educational experience. Members of the community, who attend the lectures, also benefit from your generosity.” She indicated that the check would help with promotion of the lectures so as to boost attendance.
Held each spring and fall, the McManus Business Lectures are free and open to the public. They feature speakers from all fields who epitomize the spirit of entrepreneurship, leadership and perseverance. Past lecturers include Dave Bing, Robert A. Lutz, Thomas Monaghan, Rick Inatome, John Rakolta Jr., James Croce and Dr. W. Edwards Deming.
The spring 2011 lecture, presented March 28, featured Steve Berry - The Green Guy - who shared his thoughts about how to start or own a business during tough economic times. The next McManus Business Lecture will take place in the fall.
Madonna University is a private, non-profit, Catholic university located in suburban Livonia, Michigan, on the western perimeter of metropolitan Detroit. Conducted by the Felician Sisters, it has extension campuses in Southwest Detroit, Orchard Lake, Michigan (at the St. Mary's College campus); and Gaylord, Michigan (currently offering, via interactive television, a Bachelor of Social Work). Though strong in its affiliation with the Roman Catholic Church, the school attracts students and faculty of all faiths.
Founded as Madonna College by the Felician Sisters of Livonia in 1937, the university has grown to encompass more than 50 undergraduate majors towards the associate's and bachelor's degrees as well as 22 master's programs in clinical psychology, business, criminal justice, education, history and health professions. Beginning in May 2009, Madonna will also offer its first doctorate, the Doctorate of Nursing Practice. Among the largest Catholic, Franciscan universities in the country, Madonna University is situated on a 49-acre (200,000 m2) wooded campus.
The newly established Ford Motor Company Technology Wing offers opportunities for students to work collaboratively on class projects. The school has also recently renovated the Residence Hall for students living on campus.
Travel and study abroad opportunities are facilitated through the Center for International Studies, which has developed a 30-semester hour Certificate of Achievement in International Studies.
The school is ranked by the U.S. News and World Report under the category "University - Master's" as a Midwest university, 88th in the 1st tier (2011).
