A Celebration of the Life of Oscar Romero to be held at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in West Orange

March 20, 2014 at 6:56 PM

WEST ORANGE, NJ - Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, located at 315 Main Street in West Orange, is inviting the community to attend a special service celebrating the life of Oscar Romero, Catholic Archbishop of San Salvador, El Salvador from 1977-1980, on Sunday, March 23 at 9:30 am. The service will be in English and Spanish and all are welcome.

Archbishop Romero became a prophetic "Voice of the Voiceless" for the poor of El Salvador, standing against the government of El Salvador, which was ruled by a right wing, oppressive military-based dictatorship that committed human and civil rights abuses. He was assassinated on March 24, 1980, while celebrating a mass in a hospital chapel, one day after preaching a sermon calling on Salvadoran soldiers as "christians" to obey God rather than government and refuse to carry out government orders.

Les invita a recordar y celebrar la vida deÓscar Romero Arzobispo de San Salvador, El Salvador en los años 70s y 80s. Ofreceremos una Misa en honor de el Mártir de El Salvador, monseñor Óscar
Romero, quién se convirtió en “la voz de los sin voz" para los pobres en su país.

TODOS SON BIENVENIDOS

For more information, contact the Rev. Miguel A. Hernández (973-476-4226) or Holy Trinity Episcopal Church at 973-325-0369.

This comes a year after the circus, due to mounting pressures from animal rights activists, got rid of the elephants.

 

It is not really ...
