About Me

Colby Jackson Austin Seminarian

My name is Colby Jackson and I am a Roman Catholic Seminarian – aka God is crazy and is now preparing me to be ordained a priest in the Diocese of Austin, TX.

The purpose of this blog is to keep people up to date on my journey through seminary formation. This process is totally new to me and everyone I know, so here’s a glimpse into my life.

After earning my BBA from Texas A&M in May 2014 , I studied two years of philosophy at Holy Trinity Seminary (Dallas) and now study theology at St. Mary’s Seminary (Houston). If all goes well, I’ll be ordained  a deacon in 2020 and a priest in 2021.

I promise no beautiful prose, but can guarantee some thoughts and experiences of a priest-to-be.

“The world offers you comfort. But you were not made for comfort. You were made for greatness”
-Pope Benedict XVI
