Sister Mary Lorraine graduated from Catherine Mc Auley High School in 1947. Sister entered the Congregation of the Infant Jesus in 1950. Following her Novitiate, Sister Mary Lorraine completed her training for her RN at St. Mary's Hospital in Brooklyn.

Sister earned her BS in Nursing from Downstate University Hospital, her MA in Theology and Certificate in Pastoral Care from Immaculate Conception Seminary, Huntington, NY.
