On Sunday, January 18, Bishop Richard J. Malone will be the main celebrant at the annual diocesan Mass honoring Martin Luther King Jr. Rev. Brother Henry Fulmer, OFM, from the diocese of Charleston, S.C., will be the guest homilist. The Mass will be held at Blessed Trinity Church, 317 Leroy Ave., Buffalo, at 10:30 a.m.
Brother Henry, who is a permanent deacon in the Holy Name Province of Franciscan Friars, professed his solemn vows in 1993 at St. Francis of Assisi Church in New York City. He ministered in North Carolina, Delaware and Maryland before moving to South Carolina in 2003.
A collection will be taken up at Sunday's Mass for the Martin Luther King Scholarship Fund. Following the Mass, there will be a reception and theme basket raffle in the church hall.
