Welcome to the website of the Friends of Canterbury Cathedral in the United States.
As Mother Church of the Anglican Communion and seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Cathedral is both a holy place and part of a World Heritage Site. It is the home of a community of people who seek to make the Cathedral a place of welcome, beauty and holiness.
The Friends of Canterbury Cathedral in the United States (FOCCUS) organization offers Americans an opportunity to play a creative role through discussion, prayer, study, pilgrimage and practical support in both conservation and the facilitating of scholarships to allow students from across the world to study in Canterbury. It is part of a global network of Friends who are dedicated to supporting this place. We hope you will join the Friends of Canterbury Cathedral and become part of the worldwide Cathedral family. We hope also that you will be inspired to visit Canterbury and we look forward to welcoming you.
The Very Reverend Dr Robert Willis
Dean of Canterbury
