Office of the Chancellor

Sister Sara Kane, C.S.J., first came to the diocese in 1985 and began serving as principal of Precious Blood School in Banning. Later she assumed the position of the Catholic Schools Curriculum Director. She also served first as Associate Superintendent, then Superintendent of Catholic Schools.

Three years prior to being appointed Chancellor, she served as the director of the Department of Educational Services, which oversees the Office of Catholic Schools, the Ministry with Youth Office, the Office of Small Faith Communities, the Office of Charismatic Renewal, the Office of Catechetical Ministry and the Ministry Formation Institute. Sister Kane believes she will find a way to express her love for teaching in her new ministry as chancellor for the Diocese of San Bernardino.
