Bishop Burbidge to celebrate Mass in recognition of MLK

Mass in recognition of Martin Luther King Jr. will be celebrated by Bishop Michael F. Burbidge at the Cathedral of St. Thomas More, 3901 Cathedral Ln., Arlington, Jan. 12 at 11 a.m. A reception will follow at Burke Hall.

“Dr. King courageously persevered in the face of hatred and evil to stand publicly for civil rights,” said Bishop Burbidge. “He fought so that all persons, without exception, be treated with the dignity given to them by God. Dr. King endeavored to end bigotry and prejudice through a message of hope and love. We thank God for his leadership on civil rights and pray for an end to the prejudice and bigotry that, sadly, still exist today.”
