Matthew Jewell

Birthday: August 1st

Home Parish: Our Lady of Wisdom, San Marcos

Level of Formation: II Pre-Theology

Seminary: St. Joseph Seminary

I was born August 1, 1995. I grew up in a town south of Houston called Angleton. I have an older sister and a younger sister. I went to college at Texas State University in San Marcos. I graduated in May 2017 with my bachelors in philosophy.

It was at Texas State where I started to experience conversion in the faith. Until I went to college, I had just done church things because I was told to. I got involved in a group called Saint Paul's Outreach and lived in a household with 10 other Catholic men for 3 years. It was from that place that I decided to study for the priesthood with the Diocese of Austin. I recently completed my first semester at seminary at St. Joseph Seminary College in Covington, LA.
