Theology I to IV

Home Parish: Prince of Peace
Seminary: St. Mary's Seminary

I am a transitional Deacon for the Archdioceses of Galveston-Houston studying at Saint Mary’s Seminary in Houston. I grew up in the Northwest side of Houston, close to Spring, Texas. I am the middle child of Lorenzo and Maria Garcia. I was born in Mexico in the state of Zacatecas and moved to Houston when I was five years old. My home parish is Prince of Peace Catholic Church where I was involved in various ministries from serving at Mass, teaching as a catechist and co-leading mission trips. I experienced a real intimate experience of God in the poor while on mission in Guatemala which has led me on this road to discerning my vocation. The idea of priesthood was never in my mind and was never something that I ever thought of doing. Having received so many graces from this mission trip really opened my eyes and heart to the gifts God had given me. A desire for service was born from this encounter and with the help of the Blessed Mother and Holy Mother Church I hope to be of service to the people by sharing in the ministerial priesthood of Jesus Christ. I commend myself to your prayers and please be assured of mine for you all.
