Bishop Romero: A Saint of America
March 23 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT
All are invited to share in a dynamic conversation to commemorate the 41st Anniversary of the martyrdom of our dear Bishop Romero on Ministerio Hispano Facebook @CatolicosNW. The event will feature guest speakers from various Catholic organizations around the U.S.
Bishop Óscar Romero was declared a martyr by Pope Francis on 3 February 2015 and was canonized as a saint on 14 October 2018. In March 2018, following the medically inexplicable cure of a terminally ill Salvadoran woman whose husband had been seeking Romero’s intercession, Pope Francis approved the miracle necessary for Romero’s canonization, which took place at the Vatican in October 2018. Latin American church groups often proclaim Romero an unofficial patron saint of the Americas and El Salvador.
