Benedictine Sister in Virginia celebrates 75 years of service

A Washington, D.C. area nun recently hit a big milestone, celebrating 75 years as a Benedictine sister.

Andrea Verchuck, 93, knew she wanted to be a sister from a very young age. She arrived at a monastery in Bristow, Virginia, at the age of 15 and took her first vows at 16.

She credits her faith, work ethic and desire to be happy with keeping her feeling and acting so young. Spend just a few minutes with her, and you can’t help but feel happy too.
