Archbishop Oscar Romero

Oscar Romero was an influential Archbishop of El Salvador.  He witnessed on-going violations of human rights and therefore started a group which spoke out for the poor and the victims of El Salvador’s civil war.  He spoke words of peace and supported non-violence among people.

Whilst celebrating Mass, Romero was assassinated, for his love of God and his devotion to peace and justice in his country.

We aim to apply the morals and principles of Romero’s ethos of courage, hope and peace.

“This is what we are about.  We plant the seeds that one day will grow.  We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise.”

“Aspire not to have more, but to be more.”
