Courageous Woman

I would like to introduce you to a friend, a colleague, and a courageous woman who was determined to live her life as a Felician sister. Her name was Sr. Susan Holbach. Sr. Susan provided support to the people around her, in the form of a smile, a helping hand, or an encouraging word.

She was a person who enjoyed life. She was down-to- earth and was able to easily make a connection with the community she served. She brought a gentleness and a loving heart to the people around her.

She blessed the people around her in the role of principal of several schools. She was a phenomenal teacher, who encouraged her students on a daily basis to do their best. She encouraged diversity in the educational settings she was involved in. She promoted, pushed, and offered leadership opportunities to those she felt needed a gentle nudge to serve God’s community.

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.
