History

Emerick Csendes was a missionary and later United Church minister in Saskatchewan and Manitoba. He was born in Transylvania, southeast Hungary, in October 1886. From 1914-1919, he served in the army and was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant. In 1924, Csendes left to become a missionary in Western Canada. He worked with Hungarian congregations in Manitoba and Saskatchewan – at Bekevar and Otthon – and studied at St. Andrew’s College (Saskatoon), from 1925 to 1928. He served in Winnipeg from 1929 until 1934, when he transferred to the Rothermere Mission field (Battleford Presbytery). In 1940, he returned to Otthon-Halmok Patoral Charge (Yorkton Presbytery), where he remained until 1951, when he transferred to Toronto’s Church of All Nations. He retired around 1956 and died in February 1958.
