Are you coming to serve on MLK Day?  We don’t have classes on Monday so that everyone can do something to serve others.  Ancillae will be hosting a Martin Luther King Jr Day of Service from 9 - 11 in the morning.  Make a day of it and come with a group of friends to do some service in the morning and then do something else together in the afternoon!
