Dominican Sister of Peace Mary Vuong made her perpetual vows on May 26 at the community’s Great Bend Motherhouse in Great Bend, Kansas.

Sister Vuong, a native of Houston, Texas, began discerning religious life after she encountered Dominican Sister Mary Otho Ballard, who serves in the Archdiocese of Louisville. Sister Vuong entered religious life as a Dominican Sister of St. Catharine, Ky., (now the Dominican Sisters of Peace).

During her discernment, Sister Vuong served in Louisville at Iroquois Middle School from 2002 to 2006 and earned a masters degree in occupational therapy at Spalding University in 2010.

Currently, she serves as an occupational therapist at the Central Kansas Medical Center/St. Rose Ambulatory and Surgery Center, located across the street from the motherhouse in Great Bend. In a statement from the sisters, Sister Vuong said, “When I am working with my patients or manipulating their bodies, I always ground myself in the Holy Spirit … and even when I go home, I pray for my patients always.”
