Here is what Rowan Williams, a noted Anglican scholar and former Archbishop of Canterbury, has to say about the tradition known as Anglo-Catholic:

  • Catholics are concerned about non-verbal as well as verbal expressions of faith

  • They give a central place to sacramental action as a necessary way of proclaiming the Word

  • They have a strong sense of the need to see Christian life as something that takes time, that evolves over a period and is symbolized by the recurring journey of the Christian year

  • They insist that faith is a community experience not only an individual one
