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 recording of the 2021 annual London ecumenical service to celebrate his life can be viewed here.
Mass in St George's Cathedral at 12 noon on Saturday August 14 to celebrate the 104th birthday of Archbishop Saint Oscar Romero. The principal celebrant will be Bishop Nicholas Hudson (Auxiliary in Westminster). All are welcome!

Would you like support and encouragement?
You only have to ask! Working as a Group is an effective way to make progress
While action for Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation is strongly rooted in Catholic Social Teaching, many J&P groups work ecumenically and perhaps with partners from other Faiths.
From the Scriptures and the example of Christ's life and teaching, from the Church’s Social Action and Teaching and from our own faith experience, we are inspired by wonder at God’s Spirit acting throughout creation and in every human being
⁕ love, hope and compassion
⁕ mercy and forgiveness
⁕ solidarity and subsidiarity

⁕ care for the whole of creation
⁕ simplicity and sustainability of lifestyle
⁕ reconciliation and peace
⁕ wonder at God’s Spirit acting throughout creation and in every human being
