Fr Will grew up in the Town of West, 10 miles north of Waco, in the land
of Kolaches. His parents still live in West. He has two younger
sisters and one niece. He attended mass at St. Martin of Tours where he
was an Alter Server for 10 years. Fr. Will graduated from West High
School in 1996 and attended Texas A+M University where he graduated with a degree in Agronomy in the Summer of 2002. He entered the seminary the day after he graduated and studied for two years at University of Dallas and Holy Trinity Seminary and the next 5 years at St. Thomas University at St. Mary Seminary in Houston. Fr. Will was Ordained on June 6, 2009 with 4 classmates and served as Associate Pastor at St. Helen Catholic Church in Georgetown, TX. He returned to St. Mary's Catholic Center as Associate Pastor on July 1, 2011. Fr. Will enjoys to barbeque and spend time outdoors. I grew in my faith as a student at St. Mary's Catholic Center and it is a blessing to serve here as a priest.
