Houston Dominicans Mourn Former Prioress

Antoinette BoykinHOUSTON, TX January 22, 2007-- Sr. Antoinette Boykin, OP, former prioress of the Houston Dominicans, died on January 7 at the age of 93. Just last August she celebrated her 75th Jubilee of entrance into religious life.

Sr. Antoinette was prioress from 1964-1970, those crucial years following Vatican Council II. Twice named president of Sacred Heart Dominican College in Houston, she served from 1959-1964 and again from 1970-1975.

Sister was Vicar for Religious for the Diocese of Galveston-Houston in the early 1980s, and was Director of Development for the congregation from 1982 to 1998. After her retirement, she developed her skills as a painter, providing many pieces for the annual Art Show and Sale. A life-long teacher and student, Sr. Antoinette was known for her interest in spirituality as well as world affairs, keeping abreast of current events in the Church and politics. She had a deep prayer life and often provided spiritual direction to sisters and friends.

We extend our condolences to the Dominican Sisters of Houston.
