This article depicts the specificity and multidimensional nature of Stefan Wyszyński’s personalistic conception concerning the Christian vision of involvement in culture. Therefore, attention has been paid to how the central tenets of personalism can form the basis for shaping culture, especially to contemporary (post) -modern reality? Thus, the analysis of culture carried out in the presented paper explains the discussed issues regarding a vocation addressed to every human being. Moreover, emphasizing such elements as the human person, family, nation, state, the international community, culture, economy, and politics understood in an integral way, as well as the Church proclaiming the universal message of salvation, the personalistic vision of culture shows a praxeological character, rooted in a concrete human existence and oriented towards the dimension of creative-saving. It allows not only the direct inclusion of the human person in the current of civilization and cultural changes but also allows a person to discover the right place in the dynamically changing realities of the modern world.
