Bishop Michael F. Olson, S.T.D., M.A. was born in Park Ridge, Illinois on June 29, 1966. He was raised in Des Plaines, Illinois where he attended St. Mary’s Parochial School. Bishop Olson graduated from Quigley Preparatory Seminary North in 1984 and began collegiate seminary studies for the Archdiocese of Chicago in August of that same year. In 1985, Bishop Olson’s family moved to Fort Worth as part of the corporate relocation of GTE/DC. In 1988, Bishop Olson officially transferred as a seminarian to the Diocese of Fort Worth. He was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Fort Worth on June 3, 1994. Bishop Olson began his priestly ministry as the parochial vicar of St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Bedford, Texas from July 1994 through June, 1997.

Bishop Olson was a recipient of the Basselin Scholarship at the Catholic University of America from which he earned his bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in philosophy in 1988 and 1989 respectively. He also has degrees (M.Div. and M.A.) in theological studies from the University of St. Thomas in Houston. In March of 2011 he successfully earned his doctorate in moral theology at the Academia Alfonsiana in Rome.

Bishop Olson was member of the formation faculty at Saint Mary’s Seminary in Houston, Texas and lectured at the University of Saint Thomas School of Theology between 2001 and 2006. From July, 2006, through June 2008, he served in the Diocese of Fort Worth as Vicar General and as Pastor of St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church. From July 1, 2008 until being named Bishop-Elect, Bishop Olson was serving as the Rector of Holy Trinity Seminary.
