Our 2021 Residents
FRANS VAN SANTEN
Fr. Frans van Santen is the third resident to come to Grace. Frans was originally from New Amsterdam. Frans and his wife Erin were members of the Anglican Church in Amsterdam and started a discernment process for the priesthood with the Church of England. In the midst of this process, they decided to move their family to Florida and transfer to the Episcopal Church, where he applied for our residency program. Frans is currently ordained to the Sacred Order of Deacons and will soon be ordained to the Priesthood. Frans is passionate about the beautiful message of the gospel and desires for everyone to know and experience God’s love, please welcome Frans and his family to the Grace Church family!
