Romero House was named after Oscar Romero as he exemplifies the hope for faith and justice, and the inclusivity that our community embodies.
Monsignor Oscar Arnulfo Romero, the most well – known archbishop of Latin America, was assassinated in 1980 because of his work with the marginalized and speaking out against injustice, poverty and torture. His role as spiritual leader, calling for peace and fair civil rights, was at the center of deep divisions within the Church.
On October 14th, Romero will be made a Catholic saint. To celebrate this, there is a whole month’s worth of events in Toronto and amongst the world to mark this occasion.
All events are open to the public and all are welcome.
