Rev. Andrew B. Jones
Hello and welcome to St. Jude! My name is Fr. Andrew Jones, and I am the Pastor here at the City of St. Jude Parish. We are proud of where we've been as a Parish and excited about where God is leading us, and I hope you'll choose to be a part of that. I was born in Norfolk, VA and was raised in the Southern Baptist tradition until becoming a Catholic while attending George Mason University in Fairfax, VA in December of 2005. After graduation I served as a full-time lay missionary with FOCUS (the Fellowship of Catholic University Students) at Auburn University and in Orlando, FL. In 2012 I entered the seminary for the Archdiocese of Mobile and spent six years at St. Meinrad Seminary & School of Theology in Southern Indiana, earning a M.A. in Catholic Philosophical Studies and a Master of Divinity in 2018. I was ordained a Priest of Jesus Christ for the Archdiocese of Mobile on June 2, 2018 and have served at Little Flower Parish in Mobile, as well as St. Michael the Archangel Parish in Auburn. I have been Pastor of the City of St. Jude Parish since June of 2021. I look forward to meeting you!
