Oscar Arnulfo Romero Galdámez, archbishop of San Salvador, was assassinated on March 24, 1980, while celebrating the evening mass in the oncological hospital chapel in the capital of Salvador. He had chosen to live at the Hospitalito, the place where he resided having refused the Episcopal palace. The investigation and the criminal trial to establish the material and the principal perpetrators has never been completed by the Salvadoran Government. Members of the Catholic Church, of the Salvadoran and international civil society have been asking for truth and justice for years.
Various associations and Roman realities invite you to a series of different and significant events with the Delegation.
