Martin Luther King Commemoration Service
January 16 @ 10:00 am — 11:30 am
The Rev. Canon Jayne J. Oasin, M.A., M.Div.
Each year, the Diocese of New Jersey gathers at Trinity Cathedral in Trenton to commemorate the life of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., icon of the Civil Rights Movement, on the day set aside by the nation to honor him.
On Jan. 16—Martin Luther King Day—we will come together as a community to sing, pray, teach, and renew Dr. King’s work. The program will be both in-person and livestreamed to diocesan YouTube and social media channels, as well as the diocesan website at live.dioceseofnj.org.
