The company is seeking to raise 100,000 pounds ($125,000) to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions at Archbishop’s House.

Prince Charles celebrated the 100th anniversary of a society supporting the Catholic Archbishops of Westminster.

The heir to the British throne attended the centenary reception of the Society of St Augustine of Canterbury at the Archbishop of Westminster on May 10.

The Prince of Wales was the main guest at the reception hosted by Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster since 2009.

Society chairman Edward Fitzalan-Howard, 18th Duke of Norfolk, explained how the organization has helped maintain and improve Archbishop’s House, the central London residence of the Archbishops of Westminster, since it was founded by Cardinal Francis Bourne in 1922.

An auction at the event raised over 6,000 pounds (about $7,500) for the society’s centenary appeal.

The company is seeking to raise 100,000 pounds ($125,000) to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions at Archbishop’s House.

Prince Charles was confirmed as an Anglican in 1965, at the age of 16. When he succeeds to the throne, he is expected to serve as supreme governor of the Church of England, the country’s established state church.

He has a keen interest in Orthodox Christianity and has frequently visited Mount Athos. He also expressed his support for persecuted Christians in the Middle East.

He attended John Henry Newman’s canonization in Rome on October 13, 2019. He described the Victorian-era convert to Catholicism as a “thinker ahead of his time” and a “fearless defender of truth”.
