The Notre Dame community will mark the beginning of the fourth annual Walk the Walk Week and Martin Luther King Jr. commemoration on Sunday, January 20 with a Candlelight Prayer Service, led by Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., in the Main Building Rotunda at 11:00 p.m. All are welcome to this interfaith service.
The Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Luncheon will follow on Monday, January 21, at 11:30 a.m. in the North Dome of the Joyce Center. Classes are canceled from 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. to allow all members of the University community to attend. The campus-wide luncheon will include a panel discussion, "A Call to Love: Bridging the Racial Divide," featuring seven members of the Notre Dame community. Read about the panelists here.
