Romero Lecture: Responding to the Cry of the Poor Today
22 March 2023, 7:00PM
Saint Andrews West Parish Church, 260 Bath Street, Glasgow, G2 4JP
Join us to hear from Human Rights Advocate, Peggy Healy, a close friend of the Sisters martyred in El Salvador in 1980.
There could be few better qualified people than Peggy Healy to speak about St Oscar and the El Salvador martyrs and how they inspire us to respond to the cry of the poor in the world of today. Peggy has deep and broad experience of community service, of advocacy and policy work on human rights in Latin America and globally.
For more than two decades, Peggy worked as a Maryknoll missionary sister in the United States and in Central America, where she was a close colleague and friend of the members of her congregation who were martyred in El Salvador. After working as a nurse among poor, marginalised communities in Nicaragua throughout the repression and civil conflicts which raged across Central America, Peggy returned to health work in the South Bronx.
This lecture is facilitated by Romero Trust, Jesuit Missions & SCIAF.
