Anniversary of Assassination of Archbishop Oscar Romero 24th March - On 24th March, 1980—Oscar Romero, Archbishop of San Salvador in Central America, was assassinated while saying Mass. He was known as the bishop of the poor for his work defending the Salvadoran people against repression. He spoke out again poverty, social injustice, assassinations and torture and denounced the persecution of the member of the Catholic Church who worked on behalf of the poor. He is one of the ten 20th Century martyrs who are depicted in statues above the Great West Door of Westminster Abbey in London, a testament to the wide respect for him even beyond the Catholic Church
