Former Oil Man in Frame to Become Archbishop of Canterbury

change text size

UK press and media were widely reporting Thursday that former oil professional Justin Welby will become the next Archbishop of Canterbury when the incumbent, Dr. Rowan Williams, retires next month.

Welby, an old Etonian and Cambridge graduate who is currently Bishop of Durham, worked in the oil industry in the 1970s and 80s, first for Elf Aquitaine in Paris and then as treasurer for oil exploration firm Enterprise Oil in London.

The Archbishop of Canterbury is the senior bishop and the principal leader of the Church of England and is the symbolic head of the worldwide Anglican Communion – leading the third-largest group of Christians in the world.
