Ecumenical Prayer Service

May 1, 2018

April 4, 2018 marked the 50th anniversary of the death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His assassination sent shockwaves reverberating around the world. While his life was cut short, his legacy continues. “Without justice, there can be no peace.” These words are as true today as they were when he wrote them over fifty years ago.

Archbishop Wilton Gregory and faith leaders of other Christian denominations gathered together at the Cathedral of Christ the King on Monday, April 23, 2018, for an Ecumenical Prayer Service to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Guest speakers included Lutheran Bishop Julian Gordy, Greek Orthodox Father Panayiotis Papageorgiou, Civil Rights Leader/Baptist Pastor Rev. Dr. Gerald Durley and Episcopal Bishop Don Wimberly.
