Anglican Church head visits

The world head of the Church of England, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rt. Rev. Dr. Justin Welby, will be in Sri Lanka on a twelve day solidarity visit on August 19.

He will be conducting two Holy Communion services at the Cathedral of Christ the Living Saviour at Bauddhaloka Mawatha, Colombo on August 29 and at the Kurunegala Cathedral on August 30 as part of this solidarity visit to announce the formation of a Province for the country.

The Archbishop of Canterbury has given his assent as the President of the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC), for the formation of an independent and autonomous Province and agreed to proceed to the next stage in this endeavour which will see the formation of a third Diocese for the Church of Ceylon.
