Tribute to Former Archbishop of Wales

Monday 13th August 2007

The Archbishop of Canterbury paid tribute to the former Archbishop of Wales, the Right Rev Alwyn Rice Jones, following his death, which was announced earlier today.

Dr Rowan Williams said Archbishop Rice Jones had been an inspiration:

"Alwyn Rice Jones led the Church in Wales with courage and warmth and vision through some challenging years. I think that all would agree that he was one of the most entirely loveable of Church leaders. My own debt to him for his inspiration and encouragement is enormous, and my thoughts are very much with Meriel and the family."
