Our weekly reflections are now being provided courtesy of Bernadette Rudolph.
Bernadette grew up in a large Catholic Christian family on an unworked farm in northeastern Pennsylvania. She first came to know God’s love through the love of her family, the deep faithfulness of her parents and the beauty of the land around her. She attended Catholic grade school and high school.
She received a BA in Liberal Arts from St. John’s College in Annapolis, MD. Between her junior and senior year in college, she realized her vocation was to help others know God. Bernadette attended The Catholic University of America and earned an MA in Religion and Religious Education. Over the course of six years, she taught middle school and high school religion, literature and/or math on the Navajo Reservation in NM, in upstate NY and in Albuquerque, NM. In 1994, she returned to her home parish of St. Jude in Mountaintop, PA as the Director for Religious Education and a pastoral associate. She was asked to be the principal of St. Jude’s K-8 school. While principal, she earned a second master’s degree, this time in School Leadership from Marywood University.
