SAN DIEGO — The Diocesan Commission for African American Catholics invites all people to its fourth annual Special Mass on Jan. 15 to Commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King’s Call to Service, which will be celebrated by Cardinal Robert W. McElroy.

Dr. King believed that everyone could be great because everyone could serve and that the most challenging problems could be solved by working together as brothers and sisters, regardless of skin color or background. The  federal holiday that honors him is known as the National Day of Service.

The Mass will be held at 10 a.m. at St. Rita’s Church, 5124 Churchward St. in Southeastern San Diego, with parking across the street.
