…to Allison Radomski and Les Hegwood, recipients of the 2016 Holy Trinity Centennial Scholarship!

From Allison:

“I am so deeply grateful to the Trinity community for your support. It’s one thing for me to have found my spiritual home, but it’s another thing for that denomination to really welcome, accept, and support me. I’m excited to pursue priesthood and chaplaincy, and it means so much to me that Trinity has my back. Thank you so much for your generosity and for making my vocational goals more attainable.”

Applications are no longer being accepted for the 2016 Holy Trinity Centennial Scholarship.

faviconStudents in an academic program for ordained or lay ministry in the Episcopal Church or world-wide Anglican Communion are invited to apply for The Holy Trinity Centennial Scholarship.

The Holy Trinity Centennial Scholarship Trust is a charity organized for the purpose of providing scholarship aid to persons actively involved in or committed to future participation in the ministry, lay or ordained, of the Episcopal Church or within the Anglican Communion, so that such persons may start, develop, or complete a program of study and preparation leading to such a ministry.

Holy Trinity established the Centennial Scholarship Trust in 1992, when the parish celebrated its 100th anniversary. It established three missions in the 1950s–all flourishing congregations today. In 1992, the parish created the scholarship as a means of continuing to “grow the church”. It has been awarded annually since 1994.

From Past Recipients of the Holy Trinity Centennial Scholarship:

“I am honored to have been selected to receive the Holy Trinity Centennial Scholarship for the 2014-2015 school year. Thank you! As I enter into this second year of seminary at Sewanee, I hope to do so with God’s grace, and to the best of my ability, to be a worthy recipient of your gift. Although I am unable to be with you on Trinity Sunday due to chaplaincy obligations, I send my gratitude to you and will be lifting you in my thoughts and prayers while worshipping here. The peace of the Lord be always with you.”

“I feel so honored to have been chosen as recipient of the Holy Trinity Centennial Scholarship Trust award. As a single mom, the journey of my discernment process and my seminary education has been full of challenges, but even more full of blessings and wonderful people like you who are willing to help me financially and walk this journey with me.  I am deeply grateful because with the scholarship, I can be fully present without financial worry. I have a ten-year-old son, and it is on his behalf and mine that I wholeheartedly say THANK YOU! May God bless you all.”

“Over the past few months, you would have received multiple announcements regarding my graduation from University to Scheduled Ordinations. I wanted to take this opportunity to once again thank you for your generosity and prayers, which have helped to bring me to these many reasons to celebrate the good works of God. I have accepted the call to be an Associate to the Rector at a midwest church. My residency will remain in Atlanta during this season, and my heart will always be in Georgia. I am excited about the new ministry before me and the work God has for me to do.”
