The Rev. Canon James Callaway recieves the Cross of St. Augustine from Archbishop Welby at Lambeth Palace.

The Rev. Canon James G. Callaway, D.D.. General Secretary of Colleges and Universities of the Anglican Communion, received the Cross of St. Augustine from the Most Rev. Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, last month for his services to the Anglican Communion. The Cross of St. Augustine was founded by Archbishop Michael Ramsey in 1965 and is awarded to those who have made an outstanding contribution to the Anglican Communion Worldwide. 

Canon Callaway joined the Trinity staff in 1980, and led the grants department for many years. Through his leadership, Trinity was able to use telecommunications as a tool to strengthen the Anglican Communion as well as to assist Archbishop Desmond Tutu in the fight against apartheid in South Africa. He led a wide variety of programs both globally and locally throughout his tenure at Trinity and continues to be an important and beloved figure at Trinity and in the Anglican Communion.
