Seminarian Nicholas Meisl will be ordained to the diaconate May 10. All are cordially invited.

"My vocation is the greatest gift that God, in His love for me, has given. It is a radical call to imitate Jesus, love Him with my whole heart and spend my life serving His people," Meisl has said.

Meisl, 32, calls St. Peter's in New Westminster his home parish. He has studied at Simon Fraser University (for an engineering degree), the Seminary of Christ the King, and the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas, more commonly known as the "Angelicum," in Rome.

His ordination takes place at Holy Rosary Cathedral at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 10. Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, will celebrate.
