Archbishop Oscar Romero, the man who lends his name to Romero House lived with fearless faith and uncompromising courage.
Patron: Archbishop of San Salvador
As a tireless worker and man of faith in San Salvador, Archbishop Oscar Romero fought for basic human rights and justice, particularly for peasants who were often overlooked.
In a country known for violent conflict, he campaigned for protection for those who struggled to achieve that justice.
His enthusiasm for his chosen path brought him international recognition as a mouthpiece for the impoverished and downtrodden.
Romero was even nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 for his relentless efforts.
