The head of the Anglican Communion announced plans this week to hold a massive walk with hundreds of Anglican bishops and other religious leaders during the worldwide church denomination’s decennial gathering in July.

Some 600 archbishops and bishops, their spouses, and other U.K. religious leaders will walk together through central London on July 24 to express their commitment to the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – eight goals made by world leaders to cut world poverty in half by 2015, according to the Anglican Communion News Service.

The walk, organized by the Christian anti-poverty ministry Micah Challenge U.K., will culminate with a rally on the grounds of Lambeth Palace, the home and office of Archbishop of Canterbury Dr. Rowan Williams, who is “first among equals” in the 77-million member Anglican Communion. the rest
