Other Archbishops of the Anglican Communion (Wales, Armagh and Dublin)
How to Address Other Archbishops of the Anglican Communion
The recommended (social) style of address is as follows:
|Beginning of letter||Dear Archbishop|
|End of letter||Yours sincerely|
|Envelope||The Most Rev the Lord Archbishop of Wales; The Most Rev the Lord Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland; The Most Rev the Lord Archbishop of Dublin and Primate of Ireland|
|Invitation||The Archbishop of Wales/Armagh/Dublin|
|Joint invitation*||The Archbishop of Wherever and Mrs Surname|
|Description in conversation||The Archbishop of Wales/Armagh/Dublin|
|List of Directors or Patrons||The Most Rev the Archbishop of Wales/Armagh/Dublin|
|Place card||The Archbishop of Wales/Armagh/Dublin|
|Signature||The Archbishop of Wales signs himself Barry Cambrensis; the Archbishop of Armagh signs himself Alan Armagh, and the Archbishop of Dublin signs himself John Dublin|
*Note: Traditionally, invitations to a married couple, when sent to their home address, are addressed to the wife alone, with both names being inscribed on the invitation card. It has become increasingly acceptable, however, to address the envelope with both names.
On resigning, an Archbishop reverts to the status of a Bishop, and should in principal be addressed as Rt Rev rather than Most Rev. By courtesy, however, he may still be addressed as Archbishop, unless he is actually appointed as a Bishop in this country - when he will be addressed as a Bishop.
