Archbishop visiting Pope Francis in Rome

The Archbishop will travel to Rome, accompanied by Mrs Welby, for a personal and fraternal visit to Pope Francis on 14 June.  The two clerics have shared interests in global justice, ethical regulation of financial markets and conflict resolution.  Archbishop Nichols, leader of Catholics in England and Wales, will accompany Archbishop Welby on the visit.

Earlier in the day, Archbishop Welby will visit the excavations beneath St Peter's Basilica to pray at the tomb of St Peter, as his predecessor Dr Rowan Williams did on his first visit to Rome.  Archbishop Welby will also pray at the tomb of the late Pope Blessed John Paul II, who died in 2005.

A more extended visit, when the Archbishop can engage with various other Vatican officials, will take place later in the year.
