“The Sylvania Franciscan Village is really all about relationships and the belief that we can be more together than we can alone,” offers Sr. Janet Doyle, OP, SFV Administrator. “Each interaction changes those involved and strengthens our Franciscan Village. We hope to make this outreach effort an annual event, because the Franciscan Village is committed to finding ways to use our many resources for the benefit of the community.”

Formally established in 2009, the Sylvania Franciscan Village (SFV) is comprised of Lourdes University, the Sisters of St. Francis of Sylvania and Sylvania Franciscan Health. The SFV was formed to harness energies for the greater good and benefit of those who share the Franciscan mission. Visit for more information.
