Seminarian, Joseph Zwosta’s Summer Assignment

When I was first discerning my vocation in college, I found myself drawn to the work of a parish priest, even though I was very much influenced by numerous saintly Jesuits at Georgetown. I started to regularly discuss my vocational thoughts with a priest that I trusted. Around the end of my junior year, I got into regular contact with priests from the Diocese of Brooklyn.

I am excited by the prospect of ministering to the members of the faithful at the most important moments of their lives. Having grown up in Brooklyn, I have great affection for the people of my home diocese. Our unique diocese, the Diocese of Immigrants, provides so many wonderful opportunities to serve Catholics from all walks of life and national origins. I can’t imagine spending my life, or my priesthood, anywhere else! […]
