Sister Ann Vincent is a Chicago native who has spent much of her ministerial life in her hometown. Since 1985 she has ministered at St. Christina Parish, Chicago, first as an elementary school teacher and since 1991 as a minister of care for the large urban parish.
She began her teaching career in primary grades at Sacred Heart School, Granite City, Ill., (1962-1964), then in Morrisonville, Ill., at St. Maurice (1964-1972). During her yeas at St. Edward School, Chicago (1972-1977) she taught first and seventh grade. She also taught in Philo, Ill., (1977-1978) and in San Diego (1978-1979). She taught junior high students at Christ the King School, Springfield (1979-1985).
Sister Ann Vincent first encountered the Dominican Sisters of Springfield in her home parish, St. John Bosco. “I was blessed to be raised in a strong Catholic family and witnessed a unique spirit in my parish with the Springfield Dominicans I grew to know and love throughout my grammar school and high school years,” she said. “Like those values we attribute to St. Dominic himself, I found the sisters to be joyful, tolerant, and grace-filled people of prayer.”
Sister Ann Vincent's brother Jim (Patricia) Terracina and her many counsins and relatives share her joy. Her parents, James and Hazel Terracina, are deceased.
