Historic Church Tied to MLK Continues to Fight Impending Foreclosure

Historic Church Tied to MLK Continues to Fight Impending Foreclosure

 

It is a church deeply rooted in history and the civil rights movement in St. Augustine. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. rallied marchers at St. Mary’s in the 1960s.

Almane Lowndes, now nearly 100 years old, can still remember that day.

“Words can’t express how I felt seeing Dr. King here with us,” Lowndes said.

“It is very important that they leave this as a memento of who we are and where we come from,” says Minister Raymond Dunlap.

As Lowndes’ generation passes the torch to the next leaders, she says the youth need to remember the message Dr. King preached years ago on the church steps and across the country.
