My name is Chris Zettel, and I’m excited to be starting my internship year here at St. Maurice! I’ve just finished my fifth year as a seminarian with the Companions and I’m happy to be back in Ottawa. I’m originally from Walkerton, ON, but I spent five years here completing a business degree at uOttawa.
My life changed in 2011, when I opened my heart and invited Jesus to be at the centre of my life. I heard the Gospel message and was given the opportunity to respond. In the months afterwards, I noticed a new desire to pray, to read Scripture and to go to Mass. I also began to feel a call to the priesthood. I’ve been discerning the priesthood as a Companion ever since university and I ask for your continued prayers.
Following the Lord really is a blessing, a privilege and an adventure!
