The ecclesiastical leader of the Anglican Church, Archbishop Rowan Williams, will pay a four-day visit to Mount Athos, according to exclusive information by agioritikovima.gr.

The Archbishop will arrive at Mount Athos on Thursday morning (April 26), in order to visit the Monasteries of Xenophontos, Iveron and Simonopetra where he will stay the night. Also he will visit the Monastery of Pantokratoros and possibly other monasteries of Mount Athos.

Mr. Williams will depart from Mount Athos on Monday, April 30.

To be noted, last month he had submitted his resignation to Queen Elizabeth, since the Queen carries the title of protector of the faith - and disagreed on the issue of ordination of women priests and gay marriage.
