Reverend Zachary Webb
I grew up in Coppell, Texas, where my family attended St. Ann Catholic Parish. After some rebellious years of adolescence wherein I was searching for happiness in the empty pleasures of the world, the Lord drew me to himself through the restlessness of my own heart. As I encountered the living God and fell in love with the richness and veracity of our Catholic faith, I began hearing the call to the priesthood. I graduated from Coppell High School and attended Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio, where I studied philosophy and further discerned a priestly vocation. Upon becoming a seminarian for the Diocese of Dallas, I attended St. Mary’s Seminary in Houston, Texas, and I was ordained a priest in 2012.
I spent my first several years of priestly ministry serving as a parochial vicar of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Frisco and at Mary Immaculate Catholic Church in Farmers Branch. Since 2016 I have served on the formation faculty at Holy Trinity Seminary, and I am also the Director of Seminarians for the Diocese of Dallas. Walking with these men, helping them discern God’s will for their lives and to grow in holiness, has been a source of great joy and fulfillment for me.
