Residents, clergy and elected officials gathered Monday at St. Vincent’s House for the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day Unity Prayer Circle, offering songs and prayers for a better Galveston and a better nation.

St. Vincent’s House Board President Bonnie Farmer moderated the event that drew about 100 people, including District 23 state Rep. Mayes Middleton and Galveston City Councilwoman Amy Bly.
