oscar

Unfortunately due to illness Jan Grafius is unable to visit Our Lady’s Mayfield Avenue Widnes on Thursday 21st March.

Jan is the Curator of relics at Stoneyhurst College and  has visited El Salvador three times to work on the conservation of the relics of Archbishop Romero

and the murdered Jesuits.On her first visit to San Salvador in 2007, Jan began the delicate task of examining the vestments worn by the 20th century

martyr whenhe was assassinated while celebrating Mass. She spent many hours working in the three small rooms at the Cancer Hospital of the Carmelite Sisters

where Archbishop Romero lived in great simplicity. Close by is the chapel where he was murdered on 24 March 1980.

Hopefully Jan will be able to come later in the year.

We wish her well !
