Blessed Oscar Romero

CAFOD are holding retreats around the country on the theme of Journey to Justice. Listening to the poor, reflection on the Scriptures and engaging with political realities transformed Oscar Romero into one of the church’s most respected and inspirational figures. His legacy of radical love lives on 100 years after his birth. At this CAFOD retreat you are invited to explore how Romero’s life and faith can inspire and challenge us and transform our world. Take time to reflect on your own journey of transformation and be inspired and enriched by stories of those who continue to speak out for justice today.
