New director of Rome’s Anglican Centre

Archbishop David Moxon has become the Archbishop of Canterbury’s representative to the Holy See and director of the Anglican Centre in Rome, following the retirement in mid-April of the centre’s former director Canon David Richardson, who returns to Australia.

Moxon, the former archbishop of the New Zealand dioceses and Bishop of Waikato, was welcomed to Rome on 23 May at an ecumenical prayer service in the Oratory of St Francis Xavier, run by the Caravita international Catholic community.

Speaking to Vatican Radio, Archbishop Moxon said "I think the next step for Anglican-Roman Catholic relations on the ground is what's called Receptive Ecumenism, which means listening to each other's worst nightmares in mission and assisting each other with those challenges."

Archbishop Moxon is married to Tureiti, with four adult children.
