Shared Eucharist at the Bangor Trident Base on MLK's Birthday

Fr. William "Bix" Bichsel of the Tacoma Catholic Worker invited people of all faiths to join together in a shared Eucharist at the Main Gate to Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor on the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr's birthday, January 15, 2014. 38 people from different faith traditions met at Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action, and then walked down to the Bangor base for the Eucharist at noon.

The Eucharist honored Dr. King's memory, and served to bear witness against nuclear weapons and war, and to stand in solidarity with the people of Jeju Island in their struggle to stop construction of the Naval base that threatens their "Island of Peace."
