"Plans": Archbishop Welby

THE Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church in the United States, Dr Katharine Jefferts Schori, told the US House of Bishops last week that the Archbishop of Canterbury is planning to visit her in April 2014, as a stage in his initiative to visit all the Primates of the Anglican Communion during his first 18 months in post. "The Archbishop of Canterbury has contacted me, and we are planning a private discussion next April," Dr Jefferts Schori told the House of Bishops' autumn meeting in Nashville, Tennessee. A statement from the Episcopal Church said that current plans expect Archbishop Welby's visit to coincide with a national Episcopal conference, Reclaiming the Gospel of Peace: An Episcopal gathering to challenge the epidemic of violence, to be held in Oklahoma City from 9 to 11 April.
