For the third year in a row, Christ Church Cathedral in downtown St. Louis will give area residents a chance to read and hear the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The dean of the Episcopal cathedral, The Very Rev. Mike Kinman, says he appreciates the call from President Obama to make King's birthday a day of service. But he says the readings are designed to provide the reflective counterpart that was also a crucial part of King's life.
If you're planning to be in downtown St. Louis for the Cardinals' Winter Warm-Up or other events on Monday, you'll need to take note of the following road closures for the Martin Luther King Day march.
Closures along the route will begin at 10:30 a.m. Assembly for the parade, which goes from the Old Courthouse to Powell Symphony Hall, begins at 11 a.m. at the Courthouse, and marchers will step off at 11:30 a.m.
