The Churches of Hungary Honour Patron Saint Stephen

The Churches of Hungary honoured the Hungarian patron saint, King Stephen, in an ecumenical prayer service on the vigil of his festival day, 19 August.  The Revd Dr Frank Hegedűs, Chaplain of Saint Margaret's Anglican Church in Budapest, participated as representative of the parish and the Anglican Communion. The Church of England is one of the officially recognised Churches of Hungary.  Father Frank (seen in the above photo in surplice) also gave one of the blessings at the conclusion of the service.  20 August is a national holiday in Hungary.
