In commemoration of Martin Luther King’s birthday, Seton Hill’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Task Force has planned several events for January and February 2008.

Martin Luther King Education Program

Thursday, January 31, 2008
11:00 a.m.–12:15 p.m., Cecilian Hall

Theme: The Dream: Past, Present, and Future

The highlight of this event will be a video presentation of Dr. King’s "I have a dream" speech, given in August 1963 in Washington, DC. Following the presentation students will share the ways they might influence the future of race relations by eliminating discrimination and prejudice and furthering Dr. King’s dream of a just community.

The Task Force members are asking for faculty support in helping us to have another successful celebration. Please bring your class to the presentation (classes are not cancelled). All present will gain a better understanding and appreciation of the significance of Dr. King’s message and his impact on our world.

Community Service

Saturday, February 2, 2008

Theme: Take the Day On

In keeping with Dr. King’s commitment to service, we ask all members of the Seton Hill community to participate in a morning or afternoon of community service. Service sites may include the Our Lady of Grace Food Pantry, Area Agency on Aging, Green Meadows, Caritas Christi, and Welcome Home Shelter. Sign-up sheets will be on the Campus Ministry bulletin board in Lowe Hall.
