All Saints Rome worships with St Paul's Episcopal Church for the visit of Archbishop Rowan Williams

On Sunday 11 March, I accompanied our congregation of All Saints in Rome as we attended our sister Church, St Paul's Within-the-Walls Episcopal Church, where the Archbishop of Canterbury presided and preached. Bishop Pierre Whalon of the Convocation of American Churches in Europe hosted us. The Venerable Jonathan Boardman from All Saints, and the Revd Austin Rios the Rector of St Paul's Within-the-Walls, both served as deacons for the Archbishop. Choirs, servers, assistant clergy from both congregations were present as well as visiting Old Catholic clergy. Monsignor Mark Langham from the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Christian Unity and Fr Keith Peckers SJ were two prominent Roman Catholic guests at the service.
