Oscar Romero

St Oscar Romero, Archbishop of San Salvador from 1977 to 1980 was assassinated for speaking out about human rights violation in his country. He was a peacemaker who sacrificed his life by standing up to injustice.  A Diocesan Shrine to this modern-day saint resides within St George's Cathedral and he continues to inspire and motivate the work of Southwark JPIC.

A recording of the Mass to celebrate his 104th birthday in August 2021 can be viewed here:
