Region XI Hispanic Ministry Leaders will very much miss Sr. Lydia Schneider and her commitment to the Hispanic Community.  It was an honor to call you a colleague and to have been a witness to your passion and dedication.

Sister Lydia Schneider, 65, of Prunedale, Salinas, passed into the loving arms of the Lord Thursday, April 5, 2012 after a long battle with cancer, surrounded by the sisters of her religious community Sisters of Charity of the Infant Mary.

She was born February 28, 1947, in Marysville. She entered the convent in 1965 in Italy and made her Perpetual Profession of Vows in 1972 in Italy.

Sr. Lydia graduated from Loretto High School in Sacramento. Continued her studies at Hartnell College Salinas, at University California Santa Cruz, and at University of San Francisco (Jesuit University) where she received her Masters, in Pastoral Ministry.

She served as Catechetical Director at various parishes in the Diocese of Monterey: Our Lady of Solitude Soledad, St. Theodore’s Gonzales, St. Joseph’s Spreckels, Sacred Heart Salinas, Diocesan Director of Catechetical Ministries, Diocesan Director of Hispanic Ministry, and a member of Domestic Violence Coordinating Council, Monterey County.

She was a great listener and an amazing friend to all. Her humorous and tender loving personality kept everyone joyful in her company. She was one of the kind that walked the extra mile with those in need. Sr. Lydia will be greatly missed by her religious community, family, friends, and co-workers.
