Deacon Gregory Zingler

• Fourth Theology •

Seminary: Pope St. John XXIII National
Home Parish: St. Francis de Sales, D.C.
Graduate of U.S. Naval Academy. Spent 10 years with the Missionaries of Charity in northeast Washington, D.C., serving the poor.

My life before the seminary:
Prior to attending seminary, I was privileged to spend 10 years with St. Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity in northeast Washington, D.C., caring for the poor. I was formerly married and have been blessed with 3 grown children (a daughter and two sons); all are married and raising their families in California, Maryland, and Pennsylvania.

What convinced me to enter the seminary:
My devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary and quiet reflection (prayer) convinced me to pursue a late vocation and enter the seminary.

Other interests include: 
I enjoy helping others smile and to see more clearly that the path they are on is being led by Jesus who loves them tremendously.
