FOND DU LAC, Wis. — Marian University will host its annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Interfaith Prayer Breakfast on Monday, January 23, 2012 from 7:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. in the Sodexo Dining Room in the Stayer Center.
The program features interfaith prayers, a guest speaker, a musical presentation and the presentation of the 2011 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Spirit Award.
Dr. Kenneth Harris will be the guest speaker. Dr. Harris founded LRC Publications in 1999 in an effort to create personal leadership solutions for adult education and non-traditional college students. As a result, he founded The Self-Leadership Challenge and created “The Continuous Challenge Program” (CCP) and the “Collegiate Leadership Challenge Program” (CLCP) for minority undergraduate students.
Honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. has been a tradition of Marian University and the Fond du Lac community. Together, we reflect how his dreams continue to provide inspiration, as this is a day of interracial and intercultural sharing.
This event is open to the public; however, registration is requested. The cost is $12 for an individual or $95 for a table of eight. The cost for those who are not registered will be $15 at the door. The deadline for registration is December 30, 2011.
Following the breakfast, the Volunteer Center of Fond du Lac and Marian University will provide volunteer opportunities in the community. Participants attending the breakfast are asked to bring a monetary gift or non-perishable food items to the breakfast. All items will be given to the Fond du Lac Food Pantry.
