2012-11-09

Come January, he will become the 105th  Archbishop of Canterbury and the religious leader of 77 million Anglicans worldwide.

The 56 year old is married and has five children. Previously he was an executive in the oil industry. He decided to become ordained at the age of 33, when his seven month old daughter died in a traffic accident.

As part of the selection process, the Crown Nominations Commission, nominated two candidates. The Prime Minister made a selection between the two. Then Queen Elizabeth II,  as the governess of the Church of England,  ratified the decision, making it official.
