Beginning in 1990, Mrs. Liggan, a native New Yorker, immersed herself in the activities of St. Patrick’s parish in Smithtown, New York, working as the Office Manager for Monsignor Paul H. Walsh. After Msgr. Walsh was ordained Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Rockville Centre in 2003, he appointed Mrs. Liggan to be his office’s Executive Assistant, a position she held until her family moved to Virginia in August 2004.

Mrs. Liggan and her husband, Tom, are blessed with three children and two grandsons. She and her family attend St. John Neumann Parish, Powhatan, and she calls St. Peter's her downtown Richmond parish.
