Age 94

Sister Mary Priscilla Faltisko was an educator and administrator, and she served as a Community councilor and in pastoral care, all in the Buffalo, New York area.

Most of her religious life involved education as a teacher and principal at both the elementary and high school levels; she also provided instruction for sisters in formation. She held degrees in Latin, home economics and education and she studied sacred Scripture. At age 85, she earned a certificate in pastoral studies.

From 1993 to 2019, about 20 women from St. Bernadette Parish came to the convent each week for Scripture study, prayer, mutual support and refreshments, truly a caring Christian community.

Sister Priscilla said once: “Throughout my years of religious life, God has provided for me in surprising and wonderful ways; I cherish this quote of Catherine McAuley, ‘Teach me to cast myself entirely into the arms of your loving Providence.’ Thank you for being the God of surprises.”
