Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Mass
Diocesan Celebration at Blessed Trinity Church
Sunday, January 18, 2015 at 10:30 a.m.

On Sunday, January 18, 2015, members of the Catholic Churches of Central Buffalo Vicariate and guests joined in the celebration of the annual Diocesan Mass commemorating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “Rebuilding the Bridge: Answering God’s Call” was the theme of the celebration at Blessed Trinity Church, with Principal Celebrant Bishop Richard Malone and Guest Homilist Rev. Brother Henry Fulmer, OFM, from St. Joseph Church in the Diocese of Charleston, SC. Members of the choirs of Blessed Trinity, Ss. Columba-Bridget and St. Martin de Porres parishes led the congregation in song. Members of the Buffalo Brass Choir, directed by Blessed Trinity’s Music Director, Nick DelBello, provided additional musical accompaniment.

An offertory collection at the Mass will be used to fund the 2016 Martin Luther King Scholarship Fund, as will proceeds from a basket raffle at the reception following the Mass. The Fund was established by the African American Commission of the Buffalo Diocese to award scholarships to students of color attending Catholic schools.
