Walk of Witness

Tommorrow The Archbishop of Canterbury and some 600 bishops will participate in the Lambeth Walk of Witness, meant to be a symbol of the Church's committment to working towards accomplishing the Millennium Development Goals. You can read more about the walk of witness here and here.

As the bishops walk in London, concerned Episcopalians in Fredericksburg, VA will walk with the bishops in our own walk for witness downtown Fredericksburg. We will gather at Trinity Episcopal Church, on the corner of College and William, at 6:00 AM. We will make a station at the Micah Hospitality Center- the ecumenical ministry to the homeless temporarily housed at Trinity Church- and offer prayers for Micah's work- and then walk downtown to St George's Episcopal Church, where we will offer Eucharist and offer prayers for the poor and those who help them. Those participating in the walk will also contact local and national leaders and ask them to do more to end poverty in our community, the nation, and the world.
