What drew you to the Augustinians? I spent my life at St. Nicholas of Tolentinte, in the Bronx. When I knew when the time to answer God’s call came, there was nowhere else I wanted to go.

Favorite part of being an Augustinian? Sense of brotherhood and community; the opportunity to meet/ interact with all the Augustinians who are here.

Favorite Saint: St. Rita of Cascia because her story shows God’s love working in the face of tragedy.

Favorite Book: Catcher in the Rye, 7 Men

Favorite Pastime: Yoga, wrestling, singing, acting, theater, hat collecting, baseball (Mets), football (NY Giants)

Favorite Augustinian Quote: 

Faith is to believe what you did not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe
— St. Augustine
