About Us

Sister Vernola Lyons

7-With-Story-Lyons-Vernola_page-body-copy-imageI am a native of Southwest Louisiana and grew up in the small community of Mire.

I earned a Bachelor of Nursing diploma from McNeese State University, a Clinical Pastoral Education degree in Pastoral Care from St. Louis University and a Master’s Degree in Pastoral Counseling at Santa Clara State University in California.

I have served as a nurse at Our Lady of the Lake and at Our Lady of Lourdes. I’ve worked in the nursery, the emergency department, as well as in the medical and surgical units. I also worked with the Diocese of Lafayette in services to the poor.

I enjoy religious life and have found it to be intellectually stimulating.
