SALT LAKE CITY — A prayerful procession led by some 60 Episcopal bishops traveled through downtown Salt Lake City on Sunday morning calling for an end to the “unholy trinity” of poverty, racism and gun violence.
Hundreds of people, many of them taking part in the Episcopal Church‘s 78th General Convention, walked from the Salt Palace Convention Center to Pioneer Park, joining in song and prayer. Utahns from anti-gun violence groups and civil rights organizations also took part.
“We are here because that unholy trinity threatens the life of us all,” said the Rt. Rev. Michael Curry, presiding bishop-elect of the Episcopal Church.
