The Justice and Peace Association (Caritas Diocese of Salford) will be holding their annual commemoration of Archbishop Oscar Romero (now Blessed Oscar Romero) at Salford Cathedral on Saturday 12th March at 2pm. Ann Wilson (Community Participation Officer, CAFOD Salford) will speak to us about the El Salvador of Blessed Oscar Romero having visited the country, and Fr John Sullivan (Director of the Office of Overseas Mission) will celebrate Mass.
A poster can be downloaded below for advertising the event, and we would be grateful if you would be kind enough to arrange to have it displayed in your church and/or mention it in your parish newsletter.
Please be aware this event is different from the one happening a few days later at Loreto College Chapel (M15 5PB, at 7.00 p.m. on Thursday 17th March), where as part of Romero Week 2016, there will be a talk by Fr Francisco de Roux SJ, a Peace Advocate in Colombia, entitled: “The Violence of Peacemaking – Archbishop Romero and the Search for Peace.” For more details of this event please follow the link below to another post:
