Related Special Reports

St. Bartholomew's will celebrate the ministry of Dr. Martin Luther King on Sunday, Jan. 20 at the 9:30 a.m service.

Excerpts from many of Dr. King's famous sermons and speeches, read by parishioner, Abner Genece, will be woven into the service. St. Bartholomew's Coventry Choir and soloists will bring alive the great Gospel Mass by Robert Ray.

Abner Genece has been performing on stage, in film and on television for nearly 20 years. His film and television credits include: "Unrest," "Zeke and Luther," and "Harry's Law." His stage credits include "Waiting for Godot," "Napoli Milionaria," "Othello," "Johnson over Jordon," "The Hothouse," "How Kintu Became A Man," and "For the Love of Freedom." Genece starred as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in a critically-acclaimed production of Jeff Stetson's "The Meeting." He often performs speeches of Dr. King for local schools and organizations.

Genece makes his San Diego stage debut this season in Lydia Diamond's adaptation of Toni Morrison's "The Bluest Eye," opening Feb. 2 at Mo'olelo Performing Arts Company.

Genece is working with the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego to produce a benefit staged reading of Lorey Hayes' "Haiti's Children of God," on April 8 at San Diego Repertory. This special event will feature several of San Diego's favorite performers, including Monique Gaffney (Being Henrietta) and Sylvia M'Lafi Thompson (A Raisin in the Sun). Proceeds from the event will benefit the Diocese's Help Rebuild Our Church in Haiti campaign. www.sdrep.org
