Class of 2012: Aaron Pohlen

Aaron Pohlen
Diocese of Sioux City
St. John Vianney Theological Seminary

Throughout high school and while serving as an altar boy, Aaron was often approached and asked if he wanted to be a priest.  He kindly replied “yes”, but part of him wanted them to stop asking so that he didn’t have to think about it.

It was over time and with the assurance of trusted friends, family members, teachers, and priests, who finally confirmed in Aaron that he should consider the priesthood.  Aaron also trusted that God would ultimately give him the graces he needed to follow Him, “even if it seemed impossible to accomplish”.

Through the Rome Experience, Aaron hopes “to gain new friendships with men (like me) studying for the priesthood in different areas of the country.”
