- Men’s Breakfast: Friday, December 2nd at 7:30am
- Women’s Breakfast: Saturday, December 3rd at 8:30am
- Cost: $23 per attendee
Hear what parishioners have said about the breakfasts!
Meet our speakers
Maureen was born in Albany and has resided in Loudonville most of her life. She attended St. Pius X School K – 8, Vincentian Institute, and then Maria College Nursing School.
At St. Pius X, she has been involved in many service ministries including Scouts, CYO, Eucharistic Minister, and the Altar Rosary Society. She has helped out at many events including the Holy Thursday Supper and the St. Pius X Community Picnic. She was the first female President of the Parish Council at St. Pius X.
Outside of the parish she has been active with Siena College Campus Ministry and worked at Catholic Charities Food Pantries and Soup Kitchens, especially around the holidays. She has been active with the Albany Police Athletic League, Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, and recently became a member of the Albany Council of Catholic Nurses. She is also a member of the Albany Ladies of Charity.
Her career as a Nurse was primarily with the differently abled and those on the severe end of the Autism Spectrum, which to her was a gift from God and a true calling to be of service to others.
She is very pleased to be chosen to speak at the 2022 Advent Breakfast and feels this is also a call to give back to the community of St. Pius X that has been such a significant part of her faith journey.
