Joe grew up in Long Island, New York, but doesn’t have the accent to prove it. He attended undergrad at St. John’s University in Queen’s, New York receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. As a student, Joe was actively involved in campus ministry and knew one day he would return to it.
Recently, he received his Master of Arts in Theology from the University of Notre Dame through the Echo Program. The Echo program works to bridge the gap between academic study and practical ministry. While in the Echo program Joe lived in an intentional faith community with four others and worked at Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church in Tampa, Florida primarily serving in Young Adult Ministry and RCIA.
He is very excited to become a Catholic Spartan!
