Speaker: Cinnamon Sarver
Date: Friday,  April 1, 2016 @ 7:30 p.m.

Place: Dorothy Day Catholic Worker, 503 Rock Creek Church Rd. NW, Washington, D.C. 20010

“The word remains.  This is the great comfort of the one who preaches.  My voice will disappear but my word, which is Christ, will remain in the hearts of those who have willed to receive it.”  (Oscar Romero, Dec. 1978)

So much of Archbishop Oscar Romero’s witness to the poor and suffering people of El Salvador, including his martyrial death in 1980, was offered during his celebrations of the Eucharistic. Come hear more about this prophetic figure, with a special eye toward the witness he gave in his preaching and the offering of the Mass.  

The talk will be given by Cinnamon Sarver, a local Catholic educator, who has traveled to El Salvador four times to study the legacy of Oscar Romero.  Last May she attended Romero’s beatification Mass and will also share some about that event and her personal journey with Romero.
