Remembering the Martyrs of El Salvador


November 16th marked the twenty-eighth anniversary of the assassination of six Jesuit priests, their housekeeper and her daughter in the small country of El Salvador. In addition, this year will mark the thirty-seventh anniversary of the murders of the four Churchwomen and Archbishop Oscar A. Romero, also in El Salvador. 

With those anniversaries in mind, members of Pax Christi, the Sisters of St. Joseph and Associates gathered today to commemorate the lives of these holy people and to remember all those who have, and continue to, dedicate their lives to the struggle for social justice and peace all over our world.
