Anglican Centre in Rome is an ecumenical organisation which is dedicated to improving relations between the Anglican Communion and the Roman Catholic Church.

It was founded in 1966 with the encouragement of Michael Ramsey, Archbishop of Canterbury, and Pope Paul VI on the wave of ecumenical enthusiasm engendered by the Second Vatican Council and the birth of the Anglican–Roman Catholic International Commission.

The Centre is housed by the Doria Pamphilj family in Palazzo Doria Pamphilj, Piazza del Collegio Romano in historic Rome.

Director[edit]

The Director of the Centre is also the Archbishop of Canterbury's Representative to the Holy See; they have always been Anglican clergy and often bishops. The current director is Bernard Ntahoturi, former Primate of the Anglican Church of Burundi.
