St. Ignatius Church, 8:00p.m.

In the early hours of 16 November 1989, US-trained commandos of the Salvadoran armed forces entered the campus of the Jesuits’ university, the Universidad Centroamericana (UCA), and brutally murdered the six Jesuits, together with two women who were sleeping in a parlour attached to their residence.  

As a Jesuit Institution, we come together as a community every year on this anniversary in remembrance of the Jesuit Martyrs and what they stood for.  Following Mass there will be a procession up to the Martín-Baró memorial on Lone Mountain.
