Sister M. Anselma Belongea, FSGM
A native of Appleton, Wisconsin, Sister M. Anselma spent her childhood on the ski slopes of the Upper Peninsula, camping in the northern woods and enjoying the excitement of Green Bay Packers home games at Lambeau Field. She is youngest of seven children and entered the religious congregation of the Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George in 1997. During her years of years of apostolic work, she earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Franciscan University of Steubenville and an MBA from St. Louis University, using them as she served in human resources and hospital administration in the OSF Healthcare system.
In January 2020, Sister M. Anselma came to serve as Administrator here at the Mother of Good Counsel Home after having become familiar with the Home as one of its Board members. Using her education and experiences in healthcare, she is passionate about building a team focused on living the Sisters’ Mission and creating a true “Home” for each of our residents where they are loved, nurtured, and can live the mature years of their life with great joy and freedom of spirit.
