Joe Wagner has been assigned to our parish for the summer. He just completed his first year at Mundelein Seminary in Chicago, IL.
Joe grew up in Woodstock, GA, and graduated from Etowah High School in 2005. He attended Kennesaw State University (KSU) where he received both his undergraduate accounting degree and MBA. While at KSU, he became involved in the Life Teen ministry at St. Catherine of Siena parish which helped him in his discernment.
After college, Joe worked at a public accounting firm for four years until he realized that the seminary was where God was calling him. Joe is looking forward to serving our parish this summer and growing in his vocation to the priesthood.
Joe will be helping Saint Jude clergy and staff this summer with various duties including Vacation Bible School, the Ministry Appreciation Dinner, taking communion to the sick and elderly, assisting in liturgies and working in the parish office.
Please introduce yourself to Joe and make him feel welcome. We are excited and blessed to have him as part of our parish this summer!
