Saturdays With the Saints: Archbishop Oscar Romero, Servus Dei


Location: Geddes Hall, Andrews Auditorium

Daniel G. Groody, C.S.C., associate professor of theology, director of the Center for Latino Spirituality and Culture, University of Notre Dame

Declared Servus Dei (Servant of God) by Pope John Paul II in 1997, the canonization process continues for Archbishop Romero, who was assassinated in El Salvador on March 24, 1980.

Now you can spend one hour with the saints before the home games on selected weekends this fall. Come nourish your mind and your Catholic faith with talks by distinguished members of the Notre Dame faculty.

In September, we will remember Archbishop Oscar Romero of San Salvador and St. Hildegard of Bingen, who will be declared the 35th Doctor of the Church this fall. In October, we’ll celebrate the angels and Joan of Arc. In November, we’ll explore Benedict XVI and the saints, as well as the two newest American saints canonized in October 2012.
