Romero Week: Love Must Win Out
Tuesday, March 24- 7:00pm IPJ Theatre
Kevin Clarke, senior editor of America magazine, will speak on the Life and Legacy of Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Romero in honor of the 35th anniversary of Romero’s martyrdom. Clarke is the author of a recent biography of Archbishop Romero, Oscar Romero: Love Must Win Out, published by Liturgical Press as part of their “People of God” series.
Clarke will be joined by panelists, Dr. Patricia Marquez, Dean of the School of Peace Studies, and Father Peter Gyves, SJ, Associate Pastor of Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish in San Diego. This panel is particularly timely in light of the Vatican Commission’s recent designation of Archbishop Romero as a martyr for the faith, an important step on the way to sainthood.
Wednesday, March 25- 12:30pm Founders Faculty Lounge
