The Times Union reports here:
Jewish Family Services of Northeastern New York will honor Sister Maureen Joyce at its annual banquet on Sunday at Congregation Ohav Shalom.

Joyce, chief executive officer of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Albany since 1990, worked closely with JFS in the creation of an innovative program to provide services to help older adults deal with health and age issues while remaining in their homes and community for as long as possible.

Of course, we also love her for another reason:
Joyce also helped establishing a public policy education network on political responsibility and advocacy for the poor.

JFS' award celebration will begin with a cocktail reception at 6 p.m., followed by dinner and a discussion on interfaith initiatives. Reservations are $75 per person or $150 per person and $250 per couple for the honorary committee.

The synagogue is at 113 New Krumkill Road. For information, call JFS 482-8856 or go to
