Remembering Father Thomas Augustine Judge

The saying, you can’t know where you’re going until you know where you’ve been, rings true as we remember our founder, Father Judge, and all those before us who paved the way to where the Missionary Servants of the Most Holy Trinity are today.  Each in their own way demonstrated what it means to be a missionary in your everyday life.  Take a walk down memory lane…
