Archbishop Williams Appointment Welcomed by the Cardinal

posted on 23 July 2002
On hearing the news that Archbishop Rowan Williams is to succeed Dr George Carey as Archbishop of Canterbury, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, Archbishop of Westminster and President of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales, said:

'I warmly welcome the appointment of Rowan Williams to succeed George Carey as Archbishop of Canterbury. As a theologian of distinction, a man of deep spirituality and a gifted communicator he will, I have no doubt, prove to be a force for great good in this country and throughout the Christian world.

'These are challenging times for Christians leaders. I look forward to working closely with Archbishop Rowan Williams in facing those challenges, just as I do now alongside Archbishop George Carey.'
