Archbishop of Canterbury to make Personal, Pastoral Visit to see Canadian and US Anglican Leaders
Will talks be substantive or will it all be smoke and mirrors?

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and his wife, Caroline, are expected to arrive in Canada on Monday, April 7, for a “ personal, pastoral visit,” with Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada.

The brief visit is a part of Welby’s personal commitment to visit the primates (senior archbishops) of the Anglican Communion, to meet them, and to learn about their provinces prior to the next meeting of all the primates.

No major public events are planned in keeping with Welby’s request that the visit be a private one.

He will leave early the following morning to meet in the United States with Bishop Katherine Jefferts Schori of The Episcopal Church.
