Marian University will host its annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Interfaith Prayer Breakfast on Monday, Jan. 21 from 7 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 2013 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Spirit Award.

His plans after graduation include attending graduate school and majoring in political science. Mr. Parson will share his Marian story and how Dr. King has inspired his journey.
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.
