Fr. Jaime Zarse

Father Zarse is the oldest of five children of Robert and Alicia Zarse. He grew up in Overland Park, attending Prince of Peace for grade and middle school and St. Thomas Aquinas for high school. A five-time state champion in club and high school soccer, Father continued his soccer career at Marquette University where he was able to compete against Big East competition. After a few years of college soccer, hanging up his cleats, Father decided to enter the seminary in the spring of 2008 to discern a vocation to the priesthood. Now, several years later, he has been ordained a priest of Jesus Christ and is assigned as associate pastor of Christ the King and Chaplain of Hayden.
