In the 1970’s, as El Salvador moved closer
to civil war, one man was known as
the voice of the poor and disenfranchised. Appointed Archbishop in 1977,
Monsenor Oscar Romero worked tirelessly
for peace, justice and human rights,
while in constant personal peril.
He inspired millions
with his nationally broadcast sermons,
until in March of 1980,
he was shot dead at the altar.
Join CTK’s Faith in Action group
on Thursday, March 13th at 7pm
in the Parish Hall as we remember
the legacy of a man who will surely one day
be acknowledged as a Saint. We will begin at
7pm with a prayer service
and follow that with
a screening of the documentary
Monsenor: The Last Journey
of Oscar Romero.
