Colleen O’Connell

Liturgical Minister at 4:30 Mass, Choir

Colleen was born in Troy and raised in Waterford (unfortunately, not Waterford Ireland ☺️).  She and her husband Mike have been parishioners for 5 1/2 years now. Colleen graduated from JCA (Sage Albany) from their legal program and is still working at Dreyer Boyajian firm in Albany (28 years) as a paralegal. She and Mike have two children – Jason married to Stephanie and our grandchildren Liam and Riley and our daughter Kristin married to Josh and our grandsons Jacob and Brody.  Colleen likes that St. Michael’s does so much outreach and she we felt comfortable here when she was searching for a new parish. Her favorite quote- “Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.”
