Meet our Seminarian Intern, Chris Zettel

Hi  All!

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!
