Favorite scripture passage: Two actually, and they go back to my childhood. My father would call me and my siblings “olive plants” from Psalm 128:3, (Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine within your house, Your children like olive plants around your table.). To which we’d reply, “Fathers, do not exasperate your children, lest they lose heart.” Colossians 3:21. When those readings occur I always think of my Dad and smile.
Favorite food: Western New York pizza
Fun fact: I change my hair color. A lot.
Favorite Saint: My namesake, St. Jude. The fact that St. Jude is the patron saint of hopeless causes is probably not a coincidence.
Favorite bible character/disciple: Joseph
Favorite sports team: Buffalo Sabres or Buffalo Bills
What I love most about my job: Getting to share the awesome faith stories of our community with others. God is good; all the time.
