On the third Monday in January, the U.S. observes Martin Luther King Day, the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage everyone to volunteer to improve their community.

The Diocesan Commission for African American Catholics invites all people to its third annual Special Mass on Jan. 16 to Commemorate Dr. King’s Call to Service, to be celebrated by Bishop Robert McElroy at St. Rita’s Church.

The Diocesan Commission for African American Catholics, one of the oldest cultural organizations in the diocese, works to share Black spirituality and to promote social justice. It’s part of the diocese’s Office for Ethnic and Intercultural Communities, which launched a project in 2019, “Working Together to Overcome Racism,” to raise awareness of racism in society, including in the Church, and to propose ways to root it out.
