Saturdays with the Saints Fall 2013: 20th Century Martyrs

In this Year of Faith, Saturdays with the Saints features men and women who have borne witness to their faith with their lives, and in particular, martyrs of the 20th Century.

Did you know that more Christians have been martyred in the past century than in all previous centuries? Learn about their lives, and how their sacrifices have impacted and continue to have an impact on the people of God they chose to serve.

On September 21, Margaret Pfeil, assistant professor in the Department of Theology and the Center for Social Concerns, will present, “Four Women Martyrs of El Salvador: Ita Ford, Dorothy Kazel, Jean Donovan, Maura Clark.”

These four women influenced the lives of the people they served in El Salvador and continue to serve as modern models of faith, service, and justice through action.
