Deacon Pablo Santa Maria recently told me that his priestly ordination hasn't quite hit him yet. The deacon will be ordained a priest May 26 at Holy Rosary Cathedral. Here's a little information on the archdiocese next priest:
Deacon Pablo Santa Maria was inspired to join the priesthood after attending World Youth Day 2002 in Toronto. Almost 10 years later he will realize his dream: he will be ordained a priest May 26 at Holy Rosary Cathedral.

"I had the fortune of travelling with priests (during WYD 2002) who kept asking if the men were interested in the priesthood, and I began to give it real thought," Deacon Santa Maria told The B.C. Catholic after being ordained a deacon June 3, 2011.
