Remembering Tony Chirico in San Salvador

Wednesday the 12th of September, 2018: The last day in San Salvador of the PAVCSS Pilgrimage 2018 to Central and South America. 


On the las day of the PAVCSS Pilgrimage in El Salvador, participants paid a final visit to the Church of Divine Providence where the recently canonised Oscar Romero had been assassinated while celebrating Mass on March 24th, 1980. Towards the end of his homily, the Archbishop had been shot by a lone gunman. Mark Sheehan took the opportunity to remind pilgrims of hte great interest in, and devotion to, Oscar Romero that had been so central to Tony Chirico's faith life. Several former colleagues of Tony's were present while Mark paid tribute to Tony, including John Kennedy, Tony's former Principal, and Paul Ryan, Tony's former Deputy Principal.
