Canterbury archbishop asks Catholic-founded group to live at Lambeth

November 19, 2013 - A Catholic group with "an ecumenical vocation" will establish a community of prayer at the headquarters of the spiritual leader of the worldwide Anglican Communion. Anglican Archbishop Justin Welby of Canterbury has invited four members of the Catholic ecumenical community, Chemin Neuf (new Path in French) to live at Lambeth Palace, his London residence, beginning in January. The group will include an Anglican married couple, a Lutheran studying to be a pastor and a Catholic. They will replace a community of Anglican nuns who, for the last 24 years, have lived at the palace. In a statement on Monday, Lambeth Palace said the community will share in the daily round of prayer that underpins the ministry of Archbishop Welby and will "further the ecumenical and international dimensions of his work." The Chemin Neuf group will pray three times a day in the crypt of the palace to hold the ministry of Archbishop Welby in nearly constant prayer.
