Second Sunday after Epiphany: Martin Luther King Day Weekend

January 19, 2014

The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., one of America’s greatest civil rights leaders, was born on January 15, 1929 and was assassinated on April 4, 1968. Since 1986, the United States has celebrated King’s birthday each year as a national holiday on the third Monday of January. The Episcopal Church also commemorates the day of King’s death, April 4, each year on the liturgical calendar.
