Archbishop of Canterbury to open Anglican exhibition at Westminster Cathedral

 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
