Archbishop of Canterbury appoints prior for monastic community

Archbishop of Canterbury appoints prior for monastic community

The arcbishop of Canterbury has appointed a Swedish Anglican priest, the Rev. Anders Litzell, to be the prior for the new ecumenical monastic community at Lambeth Palace. Ordained in 2012, with roots in the Swedish Pentecostal church, the Rev Litzell is currently pursuing a doctorate on the modern-day relevance of Benedict.

The Revd Anders Litzell said: “I am hugely excited about taking on this role and, through God’s grace, turning Archbishop Justin’s vision for the community into reality. We pray that the Community will be identified by prayer, by learning, by love of each other and of the poor – all with one intention above all others: to become more like Jesus.”

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
