Anglican Centre in Rome
This article relies largely or entirely on a single source. (January 2018)
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 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.
