Biographical history

Ambrosius Czako (1887-1976) was alternatively a Protestant minister and a Catholic priest. He was born in Hungary, and was educated there (he received his doctorate). He moved to Canada in 1928. At one time a Roman Catholic monk, he was received into the Protestant Church in Budapest in 1916. In Canada he ministered to the Toronto Church of All Nations (United) from 1928 to 1949. In 1950, he rejoined the Roman Catholic Church and taught at St. Mary's University, Halifax, until 1967. Besides his ministry, he was a school teacher, an author, an editor and a lecturer in Art History.
