Anglican Primates meet this month

The Primates of the Anglican Communion will gather for their regular annual meeting at the Dromantine Conference Centre near Newry, Northern Ireland, between the 21 and 25 of February. The meeting of the 38 provincial Primates of the Anglican Communion will be centered on Bible study, Eucharist and retreat led by Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams. It will include study of the Windsor Report — the recommendations of the Lambeth Commission on Communion published in October 2004 — and its ongoing reception process. The meeting will be hosted by the Primate of All Ireland and chairman of the Lambeth Commission, Archbishop Robin Eames. The recently commissioned Secretary General of the Anglican Communion, Canon Kenneth Kearon, will act as the meeting’s secretary. As at former meetings, the discussions held over these five days are closed. At the end of the meeting, it is expected that the Primates will issue a communiqué, and that a press briefing will be scheduled at the Dromantine Conference Centre. A web site containing extensive information regarding the meeting can be found at The Lambeth Commission of Communion web site, the Windsor Report, and related material concerning the report’s reception process can be found at
