El Salvador Solidarity Walk commemorates four U.S. missionaries

Representatives in El Salvador gathered for the 5th Annual Solidarity Walk in Zaragoza this year. The ACOMUJERZA cooperative had the opportunity to host for the first time and the other Sister Parish communities from Chalatenango enjoyed going somewhere new for the event.

The event was planned for December 2, the anniversary of the 1980 murder of four U.S. missionaries in El Salvador.  The participants wanted to pay homage to the martyrs of the armed conflict as part of the event.  The evening started with a mass, a walk to the town center, and then a brief program in front of the Zaragoza mural honoring the four missionaries and Monsignor Romero.
