The Primates of the Anglican Communion completed their pilgrimage in Jordan at the Moses Memorial Church at Mt. Nebo Jordan. The Custodia Terræ Sanctæ are responsible for the site and we were generously led on the tour by the Custos himself, Francesco Patton, along with Fr. Raffaele Caputo. The primates spent time together in prayer, particularly for those primates who will be retiring before the next gathering.

The Anglican Primates who remained in Jordan travelled to Hlid Salt Jordan. Archdeacon Luay Haddad and Fr. Wadie N. Far were great hosts, describing the outreach work done supporting Syrian and Iraqi refugees, and introducing us to the amazing staff and students of the school, particularly the deaf-blind unit. The primates were shown great hospitality by students and staff alike including in sharing lunch altogether.

As a final liturgical act together, the Archbishop of Canterbury today led the Primates and other members of the congregation in a very moving Renewal of Baptism Vows on the banks of the flooded River Jordan. It was followed by a celebration of Holy Eucharist. The week and the liturgy set a very positive spirit of Christian renewal and commitment for the Primates in the lead-up to this summer's Lambeth Conference.

After crossing over the Jordan, the Archbishop of Canterbury and four other representative Primates joined Archbishop Suheil in an official visit to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, where they were greeted by Archbishop Aristarchos of the Greek Orthodox Church. Together they visited both the Chapel of Calvary and the Empty Tomb and offered Prayers of Thanksgiving for Christ's sacrificial death and glorious Resurrection, as well as for the peace of Jerusalem and the entire world.

On this last business day of the Primates Meeting, Archbishop Suheil shared with the assembly some of the challenges that the Diocese of Jerusalem faces in its ministry within the Holy Land. We also listened to other Archbishops tell chilling stories of persecution against Christians within their Provinces, as well as the heavy-handed governmental oppression of their churches. Please continue to keep the Persecuted Church in your prayers
