Sister Kay has a great love for the study of the Vincentian charism and spirituality.
If you look closely at the stained glass windows of St. Vincent de Paul Church in Nazareth, Kentucky, you will find images of history’s greatest saints devotedly glancing to heaven with their hands clasped; enraptured in prayer. However, if you look long enough, in the midst of these great saints, you will also find an image of St. Vincent de Paul. Instead of being locked into a prayerful trance like the others, he seems to be looking pointedly in your direction. It is almost as if he is about to ask you, “and what will you do to serve others?” This is because Vincent viewed service to others as a method of prayer. This conviction led him and his wise companion, St Louise de Marillac, to organize service to those in need in a way that the world had never seen. On this retreat, we will explore the background of these two saints, relive some of the most pivotal moments of their lives, and engage with their unique spirituality that harmoniously blends contemplation and action.
