Remembering Dr. King in 2021

On Sunday, January 17, we will mark the Dr. King holiday at Holy Communion with a special music festival service live on our website and social media at 10:30am. We will meditate on Dr. King’s legacy and mission, even as we pray for equity and justice in our nation.

There are many more local opportunities to mark the Dr. King holiday this weekend, but we want to note two with connections to Holy Communion and our wider Episcopal family.
