Tom Judge, chaplain in the Office of Religious Diversity, was recently named a Spirit of DePaul award recipient. The award is given to staff who show a commitment to DePaul’s mission and who reflect Vincentian values. The award also honors faculty and staff leadership and service in the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul.
“As Tom’s fellow Chaplain for eight years in the Loop, I watched him embody Vincentian personalism with a diverse stream of students, faculty, staff, Chartwells employees, homeless people, and anyone else that came by,” says his current supervisor, Katie Brick, director of the Office of Religious Diversity. She went on to note that Judge is a tireless advocate for the Loop campus community, the founder of the flourishing Loop Community Service program, and a huge student athlete booster.
“Tom's Vincentian spirit is obvious and far reaching at DePaul,” Brick says.
Judge has been with the university as a chaplain since 2004, and primarily serves the Loop community. He is also the University Ministry liaison to Athletics, serves on the Student Affairs Staff Spirit and Affinity Committee, and works with DePaul’s Center for Public Interest Law.
