'Remembering Romero' - 2010 Archbishop Romero Lecture

Archbishop Oscar Romero

Archbishop Oscar Romero

Fr Thomas Greenan is travelling home to Britain from Central America to give the 2010 Romero Lecture in June and July.

He will speak at the Lauriston Centre in Edinburgh, St Aloysius Church in Glasgow, Liverpool Hope University, the Cathedral Hall in Leeds and at St Martin-in-the-Fields in Trafalgar Square, London.

Entry is free and all are welcome. Fr ‘Tommy’ Greenan is a priest of Edinburgh diocese, now living and working in the remote Petén area of Guatemala. He spent many years as a missionary priest in El Salvador before moving to neighbouring Guatemala. He has researched  and written a major study which compares and contrasts the lives of Saint John Chrysostom in the 4th Century and Archbishop Romero in our own times. We hope that Fr Tommy will bring us new insights into Archbishop Romero’s life and teaching.
