“A Dream in Black and White — Growing in Understanding as Catholics” is the theme of the 34th annual Archdiocesan Gathering in honor of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
A prayer service will be led by Archbishop Charles Chaput on Monday, Jan. 16 at St. Philip Neri Catholic Church, Lafayette Hill. A choir prelude will begin at 6:30 p.m. and the prayer service at 7. Light refreshments will be served afterward.
All the faithful are invited to join in prayer and conversation at the service, which intends to offer praise to God and to encourage mutual understanding across divides of race and color.
St. Philip’s is located at 437 Ridge Pike, Lafayette Hill, Montgomery County.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
