Pastoral Minister of Family Religious Education and Social Justice
Susan wears two hats at the Paulist Center: she is Pastoral Minister of Social Justice and of the Religious Education Program. Born on Long Island, Susan grew up in the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York. After receiving her BA in Journalism at Penn State, Susan spent the next 15 years in Manhattan working as Assistant Account Manager on the Diet Coke & Coke accounts at McCann-Erickson International, as Manager of the concert department at Madison Square Garden, and as National Marketing Director of the Big Apple Circus. After re-locating to Boston to work as Communications Director at the Visionaries, a documentary production company, Susan pursued a Master of Divinity at Weston Jesuit School of Theology. Ministering to and with the people of this vibrant faith community has been an incredible gift to her. Susan is married to Joao Soares and takes great joy in being a mother to her 5-year-old son, Lucas.
