Peter Olbrych

College I

Saint John Paul II Seminary


Hi, I’m Peter Olbrych.  I was raised in Williamsburg and am second youngest among my three siblings.  I was homeschooled through most of high school, and raised by my devout parents, who taught me a lot about the faith.   I began discerning a call to Christ’s Priesthood after several years serving at the altar at my home parish, St. Bede.  In prayer before the Blessed Sacrament, the Lord made it clear to me that He wanted me to apply for seminary in order to better know and do His will.  In my last couple years of high school, I took classes through Thomas Nelson Community College before applying to the diocese for formation.

I will be studying for the next few years at St. John Paul II Seminary up in D.C.  Saint John Paul the Great, Pray for us!

I love:

  • G. K. Chesterton
  • Coffee, Chess, and Cheese
  • Peter the Apostle
  • Target Archery
  • The Power of Silence by Robert Cardinal Sarah
