Did you know…..CAFOD celebrates the news that Pope Francis has declared Archbishop Oscar Romero a martyr, paving the way for his beatification? CAFOD worked closely with Archbishop Romero during the 1970s, supporting his famous radio broadcasts. A vocal critic of the country’s military government, he was assassinated on 24 March 1980, while celebrating Mass. CAFOD’s work in El Salvador continues today, striving for peace and justice, in Romero’s footsteps. Archbishop Romero is an inspirational figure for staff, partners and supporters at CAFOD, and for millions of Catholics around the world.
