The life and words of Archbishop Oscar Romero remain an inspiration for our work today. As a priest and bishop in El Salvador his love for his people who were suffering violence and oppression led him to take their side and to denounce their oppressors. And so he was killed, whilst saying Mass, on 24th March 1980.
To commemorate the anniversary of his death we will hold an ecumenical prayer service at Christ the King Church at 7:30pm on Monday 24th March. This service is open to all, offering us all a chance to pray and reflect on the words of Oscar Romero in the light of our work today.
We hope you can make this event, which promises to be a moving and inspiring service during the season of Lent. You can download a poster here.
