The Centre contains a large library for those interested in studying the history and theology of the Anglican Church. The Centre is also the home of David & Margie Richardson. David, a former Dean of Melbourne, is currently the representative of the Archbishop of Canterbury to the Holy See.

David announced his retirement from this role on Tuesday. He will be leaving Rome after Easter 2013.
