Also, Coordinator of the Asia Pacific Justice Peace Network from 2008 – 2011 and a Member of Good Shepherd Asia Pacific Justice Peace core team from 2008 - 2011.  Maureen was Coordinator of the Women, Justice and Peace and Integrity of Creation (WJPIC) Office in the Province of Philippines from 2002 to 2014.

In her own words:

‘Good Shepherd Asia Pacific is important to me because it is where my roots are and where I live as a Good Shepherd Sister. It is a multi-cultural and multi-religious region. Asia is the world's largest and most populous continent with approximately 3.879 billion people hosting 60% of the world's current human population. Most young people in the world are in Asia and it is here that the poor majority live.’
