OLSH Students Visit Provincial House to Celebrate WPIAL Championships

On Tuesday, the Sisters and staff at the Provincial House in Beaver Falls, PA, welcomed visitors from of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart High School (OLSH) in Coraopolis, PA. OLSH Mission Leader, Teacher, and Assistant Football Coach Jeff Hulbert brought members of the football and girls and boys basketball teams to share their successes this past season. All three teams brought home WPIAL Championships this year, and the OLSH baseball team seems poised to potentially bring home a 4th.

OLSH is a Felician-sponsored school and the students thanked the Sisters for their support. Erik Olexa said he felt “blessed” to be able to attend OLSH, especially since, as he says, “I had never won a football game until I came to OLSH.” His teammates echoed that sentiment, saying that they were thankful for the opportunities made possible by the Sisters’ support.

Sister Mary Christopher Moore, who is a graduate and former teacher and principal of OLSH, expressed how proud she was of the students for both their athletic and academic achievements.

The students left behind two commemorative basketballs and a football, signed by team members, as reminders of their gratitude to the Sisters for their prayers and support.

Serving where needed since 1874

Founded in Poland in 1855, the Felician Sisters are a congregation of women religious inspired by the spiritual ideals of their foundress, Blessed Mary Angela Truszkowska, and Saints Francis of Assisi, Clare of Assisi and Felix of Cantalice. Arriving in North America in 1874 following Blessed Mary Angela’s directive “to serve where needed,” they helped to weave the social service system. Today, the Felician Sisters founded, sponsor or support through the presence of our sisters, more than 40 ministries – all continuing to evolve to meet the needs of the people they serve.
