Let's start at the beginning:
Who are we? The Friends of the Anglican Centre in Rome are men and women, priests and lay people, the newly curious as well as committed ecumenists, young, old and everything in between. We hold a diversity of views on social, political, and theological positions, and have many different ways of trying to understand unity between the Anglican Communion and the Roman Catholic Church. Most of all, each and every one of us is committed to a dialogue between our churches that is never dull, that is alternatively frustrating and rewarding, and that’s always worth the effort. There’s an important conversation going on... and there’s room for you in it.
Endorsement of the Anglican Centre in Rome
from Presiding Bishop Katherine Jefferts Schori
"First envisioned by Archbishop Michael Ramsey and Pope Paul VI to facilitate dialogue between Canterbury and Rome, the Centre fosters this work while also serving as a place of scholarhip and learning. The work of the American Friends has been an important factor in heightening the visibility of the Centre. I am grateful to all who contribute toward this and encourage you to become involved.
May the work of the Centre continue to strengthen the church's ministry of reconciliation across the globe."
