Pat Schneider

I’m a lifelong New York (State)er, born in Amityville, raised in Babylon. I graduated from SUNY Geneseo (BA) and Indiana University (MA).

Dave and I were married here at St. Ignatius Loyola and our daughter Sarah received all of her sacraments here. I joined the staff of St. Ignatius while Sarah was in the Interparish Religious Education Program (IREP) and after my employer relocated to North Carolina. St. Ignatius is a welcoming community and I still attend Family Mass.

Dave and I enjoy theatre, minor league baseball, and off-the-beaten-track travel. My main pandemic pursuit has been crafting – I’ve completed 8 quilts, knit 10 scarves and 2 pairs of socks, and made 30 knotted rosaries!
