Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration

Mon., January 19, 2015 at 6:30 PM
As part of a service fellowship sponsored by the MK Gandhi Institute, the “Coexistence: Dinner and Dialogue” aims to help college students break through pre-set barriers regarding spirituality and faith on campus. By engaging students from Nazareth College, St. John Fisher College, Rochester Institute of Technology, and University of Rochester within a supportive environment, students will gain deeper insights about the religious beliefs of others as well as their own through the use of contemplative discussion, art, and service.
