The Vestry of Holy Trinity Church and School is very pleased to announce that The Rev. Samuel Nsengiyumva has accepted the call to serve as our next Rector, effective February 1, 2021.
A seasoned Episcopal Rector and Priest, Fr. Samuel is transitioning from The Church of the Ascension in Westminster, MD, where he served for six years; his previous parishes were located in Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin and Angola, Indiana. Fr. Samuel holds a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies with minors in Christian Ministries and Community Development from Daystar University in Nairobi, Kenya, and a Master’s degree from the Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary in Elkhart, Indiana.
He will celebrate his first services at Holy Trinity on Sunday, February 7, 2021 at 8am and 10:30am. The Vestry and people of Holy Trinity look very much forward to welcoming Fr. Samuel and his wife, Rose, to our spiritual family and community!
You are fortunate to have Rev. Samuel at Holy Trinity. Best wishes to him and his wife, Rose. We loved them here in Westminster, Maryland. Our St. Vincent dePaul soup kitchen was held at Ascension Church each Wednesday and we were all very fond of Rev. Samuel and the staff at Ascension. The Nsengiyumva family will be missed so much. Lots of love to all! Dori and Frank Batavick. (Rev. Samuel – see you at a Rebuilt conference!!)
