Meet Sister Barbara Vano, OSF


Detroit, MI

First Profession:



Sister taught HS and College Math while earning her master’s degree at Wayne State University. During her Novitiate years, she served as Director of St. Louis Helping Hands Soup Kitchen and as a Math instructor at Lourdes College. Since 2005, she’s served at Lourdes University as the Director of Campus Ministry, Director of Service Learning and, recently, VP of Mission Integration.

Learned from her grandmother and several Friar and Sister friends: Always be present in the moment and to the individual who stands before you; be flexible – you never know where God is leading you. “God has created me to do Him some definite service… I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons.” – Cardinal John Henry Newman
