In August of 1992 Sister M. Johnna Ciezobka and Sister M. Susanne Dziedzic arrived in Kingstree, South Carolina to begin a Mission on behalf Congregation of the Felician Sisters. The two Sisters shared a common vision, mission and passion instilled in them by God to serve their brothers and sisters in Christ. They chose to live in the neighborhood that they would serve so as to be totally available to the people, as was their Foundress Blessed M. Angela a century ago. With no plan on what God was calling them to do, they heeded the advice of two Sisters who had been in the south, and told them to “Fall in love with the people and the people will call forth from you what they need.” Within three days there were five children on the back porch of the convent doing homework. So began the St. Ann Catholic Outreach Center’s After School Program. The Center shared a 501 (c) (3) status through the Diocese of Charleston, South Carolina.
