“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.
