Reverend Eugene Azorji
I was born in Oboama Ezinihitte Mbaise in Imo State, Nigeria. I attended St. Peter Claver’s Seminary Opkala and Bigard Memorial Seminary Enugu, both in Nigeria. After my ordination in 1980, I served as a parochial vicar in the Archdiocese of Owerri. I later served as a parish priest at St. Joseph Alaenyi Ogwa. I was the pioneer rector of Mater Ecclesiae Seminary Nguru Mbaise, a minor seminary. I went to Urban University in Rome in 1984 for further studies and majored in Dogmatic Theology. In 1989 I received a master’s degree in School Counseling from St. John’s University in New York. I spent several years at St. Joseph Major Seminary Ikot Epkene Akwa Ibom State and Seat of Wisdom Seminary Ariam Umuahia, both houses of formation in Nigeria.
I have served in the Diocese of Dallas for several years and was most recently the Pastoral Administrator of St. Michael the Archangel Church in McKinney. I began the process of incardination to the Diocese of Dallas several years ago. My current assignment is Resident Spiritual Director at Holy Trinity Seminary.
