USCCB Calls for Building the "Beloved Community," Inspired by Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Mlk Sign1
As we celebrate the life and legacy of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Monday, the United States Catholic Conference (USCCB) calls for the building of the "beloved community" inspired by Rev. King. In the statement, Archbishop José H. Gomez of Los Angeles, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, says: "As our nation prepares to commemorate the life and witness of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., we are grateful for his courageous stand in solidarity with all who suffer injustice and his witness of love and nonviolence in the struggle for social change. But we are once again painfully aware that we are still far off from his dream for America, the 'beloved community' for which he gave his life."

To read the full statement, visit the USCCB website. The Missouri Catholic Conference office will be closed on Monday, January 20, in observance of the holiday.
