Oscar Romero was 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 mark the anniversary of his death Mass will be celebrated on Saturday 22 March at 12 noon at St Mary’s, Duke Street, Denton, Manchester M34 2AN . Afterwards there will follow a presentation by Ann Wilson who recently visited El Salvador.
