Please join Archbishop Wilton Gregory and his auxiliary bishops, Most Reverend Bernard E. Shlesinger III and Most Reverend Joel M. Konzen, S.M. for an Ecumenical Service of Prayer at the Cathedral of Christ the King, 2699 Peachtree Road, N.E., Atlanta, Georgia 30305 on Monday, April 23, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. with a reception following in Kenny Hall.

April 4, 2018 marks the 50th Anniversary of the death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His assassination sent shock waves 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. The fiftieth anniversary of Dr. King’s death is especially meaningful for the ecumenical community here in Atlanta.
