A special Mass to mark the birthday of St Oscar Romero will be livestreamed on Saturday 15th August at 12.30pm from St George's Cathedral, Southwark.

The celebrant will be Mgr John O'Toole, Episcopal Vicar for Kent and a Guardian of the Romero Shrine in St George's Cathedral.

Julian Filochowski, Chair of the Archbishop Romero Trust said: "The Corona Virus emergency forced us to cancel the many events that had been planned for the 40th anniversary of Archbishop Romero's martyrdom last March.

"This August celebration will mark the birthday of St Oscar Romero. It provides an opportunity for us to remember Romero's absolute trust in God and his apostolic courage as he faced up to one crisis after another - which inspires us today."
