Tabled 14 November 2018
2017-19 Session
That this House celebrates the canonisation of Archbishop Oscar Romero on 14 October; notes that this will give Saint Romero the wider recognition he so richly deserves; further notes all he did to denounce the violence which affected El Salvador, how he spoke out against oppression, how he stood against injustice and alongside people in poverty; and acknowledges the role Saint Romero had, and continues to have in inspiring the work of CAFOD, Trocheva and the wider CARITAS family.
