The Oscar Romero Award
Archbishop Oscar Romero is a 20th century martyr of the Church. He was the Archbishop of San Salvador in Central America and was canonised (recognised as a saint) on 14 October 2018 by Pope Francis in Rome, having been beatified on 23 May 2015.
The Oscar Romero Award Trust was set up to advance the Catholic faith for the benefit of the public in accordance with the teachings of St. Oscar Romero; The Oscar Romero Award for schools recognises a school's commtiment to Catholic Social Teaching.
The Trust is incredibly proud that nine of our schools have so far been awarded the Participator Level of The Oscar Romero Award, which recognises that a school is living their mission as a Catholic community; and four of our schools have also now been awarded the Developer Level Award!
