The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, will open an exhibition on Anglicanism at Westminster Cathedral in London next Friday, 14 January during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. . The event marks Dr Williams' first formal visit to the Cathedral. The exhibition: "Anglicanism and the Western Christian tradition: Continuity and Change", was devised by Britain's ambassador to the Holy See and the Dean and Chapter of Norwich Cathedral as an initiative to promote Anglican-Catholic understanding. It was first shown in the Vatican museums in 2002, and was the first exhibition by a non-Catholic body to be held there. The Archbishop of Westminster, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, will open the exhibition with Archbishop Rowan Williams at 4 pm. Dr Williams will preach at Vespers, which begins at 4.45pm. Cardinal Murphy-O'Connor said he was looking forward to welcoming Archbishop Rowan to the Cathedral. He said: "I am delighted that the Archbishop of Canterbury is joining me to open this exhibition, which I hope will contribute to Anglican-Catholic understanding." Source: Archbishop's House
