“She still completes a full genuflect at every mass.”
That’s one thing that almost every Dominican Sister of Peace who has met Sister Vincent de Paul Hutton says at the very mention of her name.
At 107 years old, Sr. Vincent de Paul is celebrating 85 years of religious life, and still going strong.
Sr. Vincent de Paul’s ministry reflects her times. After entering the Kentucky Dominicans in 1933, she served as a teacher and a school administrator for 50 years, bringing a love of learning to children in Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Massachusetts, West Virginia and Puerto Rico.
After retiring from teaching, Sr. Vincent de Paul was an Assistant in the Finance Department for the St. Catharine Kentucky Congregational offices for 14 years. Today she serves her Congregation and God’s people through her ministry of prayer and presence at the Sansbury Care Center in St. Catharine, KY.
