Archbishop of Canterbury
We are proud that Archbishop Justin Welby is our Patron
I am delighted to be the Patron of St George’s College, Jerusalem which, as part of the Diocese of Jerusalem, is a visible sign of the Anglican presence in the Holy Land and throughout the Middle East.
My own visits to St George’s College and Cathedral have shown me the importance of Christians making pilgrimages to the places where our Lord lived, died and rose again and where the Church of Jesus Christ was first established and empowered for mission. I commend the pilgrimages and courses at St George’s College as a fine way for Anglicans to experience the Holy Land and to meet local Christians, who need to know they are not forgotten. Let us all continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for all the peoples who call it holy.
The Most Revd Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury
