Seminarian Working for the Multicultural Office
By Luke Poczatek
Hello, my name is Luke Poczatek, and I’m a seminarian for the Diocese of Arlington. I recently completed my fourth year of college seminary at the Pontifical College Josephinum, stationed in Ohio. My seminary formation will continue this fall at St. Charles Borromeo seminary, where I will be doing a Spiritual Year. This year is a preparation year for Theology, where one grows in his prayer life in a particular and powerful way. My home parish is Our Lady of Angels in Woodbridge. For recreation, I enjoy playing basketball, following sports, and spending time with my family.
This summer, I’m working for the Office of Multicultural Ministries. The office will provide me with opportunities for exposure to the different cultural Masses and events in our Diocese. From this I hope to gain a broad picture of our Diocese in all its diversity, and see the unity we all have in this cultural diversity. I greatly look forward to seeing the unique cultures in all their richness, especially in the Mass. In the Mass, one recognizes that Christ draws all together as He says to His Father in John 17:21: “I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one…”
