Sister Joanne Yankauskis
As a Sister of Notre Dame de Namur, Sister Joanne taught at several Catholic elementary schools in Massachusetts.
After transferring her vows to the Sisters of St. Benedict in Oklahoma, she was involved in parish, diocesan and retreat ministry for the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City and the Diocese of Tulsa. She also worked in vocation ministry for her community. When that monastery closed, she transferred her vows to Mount St. Scholastica.
Currently, Sister Joanne ministers at Sophia Spirituality Center as administrative assistant and librarian. She finds enjoyment in photography, designing greeting cards, and creating photo books.
