Very Reverend Vincent C. Anyama

A native of Imo State in Nigeria, I was ordained in 2009 for the Catholic Diocese of Dallas. The first four years of my priesthood were spent in parish ministry as Parochial Vicar of St. Francis of Assisi parish in Frisco, and Parish Administrator of All Saints in Dallas. I have a doctorate in Dogmatic Theology from the Gregorian University in Rome, with a specialization in the theology of Pope emeritus Benedict XVI. Shortly after my doctoral studies, I served as Sacramental Minister at Corpus Christi parish in Ferris, Texas.

In addition to my parish ministry, I have been a faculty member in priestly formation for the past several years. In those years of seminary work, I have served as Vice-Rector at St. Mary’s Seminary in Houston, and as Vice-Rector at Holy Trinity Seminary in Dallas. Besides seminary work, I have taught Systematic Theology at St. Thomas School of Theology in Houston and at the University of Dallas in Irving.

I was appointed Rector of Holy Trinity Seminary in March 2022, effective July 1, 2022.
