Kathleen entered St. Agnes Convent in 1947.  She attended St. Agnes High School, graduating in 1950.

Sister Barbara Rose made her first profession of vows in the Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes on August 15, 1952.  Sister received a BS in Elementary Education, with a major in social studies, from Marian College of Fond du Lac in 1962.  She went on to earn an MS in Elementary Education from Marygrove College, Detroit, MI, in 1974.  During the 70s and 80s she continued advancing her education, earning credits in religion and school administration.
