Anglican Liaison at Vatican out after Sex Misconduct Charge

Friday, 21 December 2018 03:38 PM

ROME (AP) — The Anglican Church's representative to the Holy See has resigned following an allegation of sexual misconduct.

A statement from the Anglican Centre in Rome, an ecumenical study center and headquarters for the Archbishop of Canterbury's envoy to the Holy See, announced the resignation Friday.

Archbishop Bernard Ntahoturi, former Anglican primate of Burundi, was appointed in 2017. He didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Details of the alleged misconduct weren't released. A brief statement issued by the center said Ntahoturi was suspended last week and that the governors of the center had accepted his resignation.

Anglicans split from Catholicism in 1534, after England's King Henry VIII was denied a marriage annulment. The two churches have forged closer ties in the last few decades.
