Game Night Launches Summer Programs at the Felician Center

Discover how the Felician Center in Kingstree, SC, brings joy and learning to children with summer programs and community support.

After months of isolation, the Felician Center in Kingstree, South Carolina, kicked off their summer programming with a game night. After smiles and hugs from friends they had missed, the children enjoyed games of Yahtzee, Skip-BO, shuffleboard, badminton and cornhole.

They beat the heat with cold drinks, ice cream and a pizza to take home to share with their families. Each child also took home some games to enjoy over the summer. Director Sr. Mary Susanne Dziedzic said, “The joys were worth all the planning to welcome summer 2021.”

This event, which was funded by the Felician Services St. Francis Fund and Duke Energy, is part of the Center’s Beyond the Classroom learning series, which will continue throughout the summer through the sponsorship of week-long camps exploring science, cooking, art, math and reading. In addition, ten children are being sponsored to attend the Moore Botanical Camp in Lake City, South Carolina, including garden exploration and a culinary camp.

Sr. Susanne said that putting the pandemic behind, but remaining cautious, the children will have many opportunities for “beyond the classroom learning.”

The Felician Center is a ministry of the Felician Sisters of North America in Kingstree, South Carolina, that provides an after-school and summer program for children, community meals, a food and clothing pantry and connections to other social service resources. To learn more, visit their website.

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.
