Archbishop as Patron

The patronages that have been selected by the Archbishop are a reflection of his interests in education, justice, democracy, law and order, health and well being, and sport.

An important part of the Archbishop's engagements relates to his relationship as patron or president to over 100 organisations. Working with organisations as Patron, the Archbishop is able to support and to help profile the work and celebrate the achievements. During the course of a year, the Archbishop will undertake a number of engagements directly related to this area of his work, so that he has an opportunity to meet the people directly involved.
