Welcome to the Interim Director and the Chair of Governors 

 

BurrowsShepherd 2019-02We were very pleased to be able to welcome both John Shepherd, our interim director, and Michael Burrows, the new chair of Governors of the Anglican Centre. John and Michael arrived yesterday in Rome, for John to take up his role, and for Michael to visit the Centre for the first time as Chair.

Together with the Rome-based staff, and the advice and counsel of the Communion-based governors, they will help set the direction and culture of the Centre over the coming months until the appointment of a new full-time director. We are very grateful for their presence with us, their prayer and efforts for the important work of the Centre, so that we might continue to be a place of encounter, hospitality, pilgrimage, prayer and representation.
