ARLINGTON, Va.  – Sunday, January 13, Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge will celebrate the life and legacy of Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. and this nation’s fight for civil rights, during a Mass at the Cathedral of Saint Thomas More in Arlington.  

During his podcast, Walk Humbly, Bishop Burbidge said this about Dr. King: “He fought that all persons, without exception, especially those subject to bigotry and prejudice throughout their history and lives, must be afforded the same dignity as every human person.
