Archbishop Eames received the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Award for Outstanding Service to the Anglican Communion.
Presenting the Award, Archbishop Williams said: “We have in the Anglican Communion various ways of recognising distinguished service. There are awards given at Lambeth, there is the cross of St Augustine. But once in a while somebody comes along for whom this doesn’t seem completely adequate and when Desmond Tutu retired, the then Archbishop of Canterbury invented the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Award for Outstanding Service to the Anglican Communion.
“Tonight it is a huge privilege to present that award for the second time.”
