Newman Association – ‘He Talked the Talk and He Walked the Walk: St Oscar Romero, bishop and martyr’

27 November, 2019 @ 7:30 pm 9:00 pm

Julian Filochowski OBE

Formerly Director of CAFOD, Julian Filochowski currently serves as Chair of the Archbishop Romero Trust and Jesuit Mission Consultant, advising on Latin American issues. He has already presented six volumes of the English translation of the Salvadorian Archbishop’s homilies to Pope Francis. His presentation will cover Romero’s ministry, his martyrdom, his canonisation and the legacy for us, young and old alike, in the today’s Church – where Pope Francis embraces and commends Romero as a model for bishops, priests and the laity. [To recall – Saint Oscar Romero (1917- 1980) was shot by a lone gunman whilst saying Mass in his own church on 24th March 1980. He had started a revolution without guns and without an army and one of his memorable sayings was “If they kill me, I shall rise in the Salvadorian people”]
