Just completed a nice visit with Bishop Stephen Platten from the Diocese of Wakefield in England. Stephen is chairman of the Board of Governors of the Anglican Centre in Rome. He was in the States to greet our new Presiding Bishop, Katharine Jefferts Schori, and to meet with the American Friends of the Anglican Centre.
The Anglican Centre is 40 years old this year and is located on the second floor within Palazzo Doria Pamphilj in the heart of Rome. Its mission is to promote Christian unity by developing friendly and informed relations between the Anglican Communion and the Roman Catholic Church.
It provides a permanent Anglican diplomatic presence in Rome and exercises a ministry of hospitality and prayer and creates affordable educational opportunities for clergy and laity so that all may be involved in working toward Christ’s prayer ‘that we all may be one.’
