A Long Island nun celebrated her 111th birthday! Sister Francis Dominici Piscatella marked the big day surrounded by family. She is a member of the Sisters of Saint Dominic in Amityville, New York.

Despite being the oldest nun in the U.S. and the third oldest in the world, she still attends Mass at her parish, Saint Aidan Church, every week.

Sister Francis has lived through 19 U.S. presidents and ten popes.

When speaking with Currents News on previous birthdays, Sister Francis cracked jokes about her age, saying, “God just doesn’t want me yet.”
