Diocese of NJ hosts Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service on January 21, beginning in Trinity Cathedral at 10 am. Honor the legacy and the memory of the late civil rights leader by joining your brothers and sisters from across the diocese to serve others. Following a special Eucharist in the cathedral, we will gather for a series of service projects that serve at-risk communities. It’s a fitting tribute to a man who dedicated his life to the service of others. For more information, go to http://dioceseofnj.org/calendar/mlk-day-of-service/
