  •  Commemorating the UCA Martyrs

    Thursday, Nov. 18, 2010

    Last Saturday, our students participated in the activities commemorating the lives and commitments of the six Jesuit and their housekeeper and her daughter at the University of Central America (UCA) who killed at the UCA back in 1989.
    Every year this event draws thousands of people from El Salvador and other countries.

    The anniversary is always an important celebration for la Casa de la Solidaridad. Throughout its history, the program has drawn inspiration from the Jesuit martyrs.
