Marton LonartThird Theology
St. Mary's Seminary and University
University of Virginia
I was born in Budapest, Hungary. My family immigrated to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania when I was three years old. We moved to Galveston, Texas where I attended Galveston Catholic School and Sacred Heart Church. Thereafter we migrated to the Dallas area and subsequently to Virginia Beach. I am the eldest of two brothers. I graduated from the University of Virginia in 2009 with a B.A. in Mathematics. In Charlottesville, I received the three Sacraments of Initiation and was active in ministry at St. Thomas Aquinas. I then returned home to Virginia Beach attaining a Master’s of Math Education from Old Dominion University in 2011.
After moving back to Virginia Beach, I was involved in the religious education ministry at Church of the Holy Family. After two years of discernment, prayer, and conversation with my parish priest, I felt called to serve God and the Church by applying to the Richmond formation program.
I start my Second Theology year at St. Mary’s Seminary in Baltimore, Maryland in the fall of 2013.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, listening to classical music (especially Bach and Handel), exercising, and spending time with friends.
