Santa Maria embarks on the priesthood

Archbishop ordains priest from steady family
Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, prays as Father Joseph Phuong Nguyen, vocations director for the Archdiocese of Vancouver, lays his hands on Father Pablo Santa Maria. Father Santa Maria was ordained to the priesthood in front of his family and a large crowd at Holy Rosary Cathedral May 26. Nathan Rumohr / The B.C. Catholic.
In my latest article, I cover Father Pablo Santa Maria's ordination Mass, delving into the life of the archdiocese's newest priest: 
Father Pablo Santa Maria called his journey to the priesthood “ordinary.” But Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, said this “ordinary” journey should provide an inspiration for how families should live their Catholic faith.

Father Santa Maria was ordained to the Sacred Order of Priests May 26 in Holy Rosary Cathedral.

“I express my heartfelt gratitude to Pablo’s parents Pablo and Maria, his brother Humberto, his sister Ana, his grandparents, and other family members for their example of the love of Jesus and the Church and their unceasing prayer for Pablo,” Archbishop Miller said.
