A native of Omaha, NE, Frances Kucirek met the Sisters of St. Mary through her brother who was stationed in Waco and often volunteered at the school and visited the Sisters at Sacred Heart Academy. Hearing the Sisters discuss the need for a teacher, he recommended his sister who was qualified. Frances accepted the invitation, taught a year, and then felt called to join the Sisters of St. Mary.
