The Revd Dr Frank Hegedus begins ministry in Budapest

The Reverend Dr Frank Hegedus has been appointed priest-in-charge of the Anglican Church of St Margaret of Scotland, Budapest, Hungary. He comes to this diocese from the Episcopal Church, USA, where he most recently served as interim minister, Almaden, San Jose, California. Fr Frank began his new ministry on 1 April and will be licensed formally by the Archdeacon of the East, the Venerable Patrick Curran, on 7 May. Welcome to this diocese, Fr Frank!
Why is our Church in Budapest dedicated to a Scottish saint? St Margaret of Scotland was born in Hungary, her father having been exiled by King Canute when he conquered England. She later returned to Britain, and married the Scottish King Malcolm III.
