Martin Luther King Day Celebration on January 17th at Noon

December 28, 2021

Holy Rosary-St. John Church Celebrates the Life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with Andrea Pannell, OPA

The Community of Holy Rosary & St. John the Evangelist is hosting its annual Martin Luther King Day celebration on Monday, January 17, 2022 from noon to 1:30 p.m. at Holy Rosary-St. John Church, 660 South Ohio Avenue (between Main and Livingston), Columbus, Ohio. The guest speaker is Andrea C. Pannell, OPA. Everyone is welcome!

Andrea Pannell is the Vice President of Stewardship for The Catholic Foundation of the Diocese of Columbus. Before joining The Catholic Foundation, Andrea served as the Director of Development and Planning for the Diocese of Columbus. She also serves on the Diocesan Ethnic Ministries Board and its Hope Task Force.

Andrea is a Dominican Sisters of Peace Associate and a Spiritual Director. She is also a member of St. Dominic Catholic Church where she is active with the Bakhita Dance Ministry, the Gospel Choir, and is chairperson of the stewardship committee.

An engaging and energetic speaker, retreat leader, and writer, Andrea believes “Your ability to love and to be loved is key to having it all” and credits “our ‘Love Limits’ as sizing us for the cement boots that keep us stuck in places of disappointment, disengagement and dysfunction.”

Holy Rosary-St. John has been celebrating Martin Luther King Day every year since the holiday was established in 1986. Vernon Hairston will be directing the gospel choir during the celebration. For additional information, email or call (614) 252-5926, ext. 7.

Merry Christmas!

Thanks to the Catholic Times for an article about the way the staff of the various social service ministries and organizations in the St. John Community Center stepped up when trying to work without an elevator for a while, and thanks to all those in the church and in the broader community who donated to help us replace it. Everyone is so grateful every day for the working elevator!
