Pope Makes Historic Visit To Rome Anglican Church

Pope Francis attended a service at the All Saints’ Church in Rome on Sunday, February 26, becoming the first pontiff in history to visit an Anglican church in the Italian capital.

Francis’s visit marked the 200th anniversary of the All Saints’ church, furthering a rapprochement between the Vatican and the Anglican Church of England that began last year.

In a further sign of the closer ties, the pope spoke of the “possibility” of a visit to troubled South Sudan with the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, his Anglican counterpart.

Pope Francis added that such a visit would only be for a single day “because the situation is difficult there”.
