Six Jesuit priests, along with their housekeeper and her 16-year old daughter, were murdered at the University of Central America in El Salvador on November 16, 1989. These men were targeted because of their work to promote social justice and to empower the most vulnerable members of society. As we remember them, we also remember the 70,000 Salvadorans who lost their lives during the civil war. This 25th anniversary provides a moment of solidarity to reflect on how the murders have influenced Jesuit institutions like USF address issues of justice, peace, and service.
