SAN DIEGO — “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., once asked.
The Diocesan Commission for African American Catholics invites everyone to a special Mass on Jan. 14 to honor Dr. King’s call to service.
Cardinal Robert W. McElroy will celebrate the Gospel Mass at 8:30 a.m. at Christ the King Catholic Church, 29 N. 32nd St., in San Diego.
Dr. King’s transformative work touched “many people from all walks of life,” said Reginald Stewart, the commission’s chair.
Dr. King dedicated his life and work to the service of others, tirelessly working as a pastor and civil rights leader.
This will be the sixth annual Mass in the diocese honoring Dr. King’s vision of every man, woman and child working together peacefully, in the service of each other.
“We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny,” he once said. “Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”
