The Marquette University community is invited to commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., with a special morning prayer service and community reading
of Dr. King’s “A Christmas Sermon on Peace.” One of five orations included in Dr. King’s book, The Trumpet of Conscience, it is often noted
for its prophetic and enduring message as a plea for peace in a broken world. The reading will be complemented by prayer as well as singing led by the Marquette University
Gospel Choir. Light refreshments will follow in AMU room 157.
The service is sponsored by Campus Ministry, Raynor Memorial Libraries, and the Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion.
