NEW WILMINGTON, PA – Westminster College will celebrate the life of Martin Luther King Jr. at a special vespers service at 7 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 27, in the college’s W. Charles Wallace Memorial Chapel. This event was originally scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 20, but postponed due to inclement weather.

Jarrett Samuels Sr. ’94, a leader in the Farrell community, will serve as guest speaker. A mentor to many youth in the Farrell area, Samuels is founder of Crossroads Group Homes and Services that provides support to at-risk adolescents. Since 2007, Samuels has served as the head coach of the Farrell High School football team, which finished the 2018 season with a 15-0 record and claimed the PIAA Class A State Championship.

Music during the service will be provided by the New Castle Community Choir.

The service is free and open to the public.
