Although the feast of Martin Luther King jr falls on the day of his “heavenly birthday” — that is, the day of his death — it seems that the people of God most often choose to follow the secular practice, and many churches observe him on his birthday, January 15, or the Monday designated as a holiday.

Next Monday, the parishes of the Bronx will gather at Church of the Holy Nativity in Norwood, to celebrate the life and ministry of Dr King; Bishop Dietsche is to celebrate, Bishop Shin to preach. The offering will support the Martin Luther King Jr Memorial Scholarship Fund of the Bronx Council.
