2021 Trinity Scholarship Winner - Richard Ahlquist
Richard grew up at Holy Trinity Parish where he sang in the choir, and served as one of the best-trained acolytes in the diocese, under Tommy Lowndes. He was greatly impacted by youth group experiences at Holy Trinity. Trips to Camp Mikell, volunteering at the Atlanta Community Food Bank, a white-water rafting trip to Canada, and being up-staged by Rev. Hunt Comer at a talent show are all cherished memories of Holy Trinity.
After graduating from Decatur High School in 2002, Richard went to Auburn University to study Forestry, and attended St. Dunstan’s Episcopal Church. He practiced forestry in Alabama for 12 years before the Diocese of Alabama confirmed his discernment of a call to ordained ministry. In August of 2020 he and his wife, Helen, moved to Sewanee, TN with their two children, Miles (4) and Elizabeth (2). Richard has completed the first of three years to complete his Masters in Divinity at the University of the South. He particularly enjoys his classes in theology and electives in Spanish, which he hopes will allow him to serve Hispanic and Latino communities in the future.
and Helen love all things outdoors, where they experience God’s love
for us in the beauty of creation. They both grew up Episcopalian, and
look forward to serving this wonderful church in new ways. They are
excited to see where this journey will take them in two years, and
