Romero Center Ministries is introducing a new program in Spanish for the Latino community. The program, “Project Dignitas,” is a day-long retreat rooted in the principles of Catholic Social Teaching, with a special focus on the teaching about the life and dignity of the human person. We received local funding from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development for this project and are working together with St. Joseph Pro-Cathedral and Camden Churches Organized for People.
The Project Dignitas retreat day includes: reflections on how the principle of the dignity of the human applies to the lives of program participants; service immersion with the homeless community in Camden, NJ; theological reflection, including social analysis and the call of faith to respond to situations of injustice; a specific exploration of the particular ways God may be calling program participants to work for justice in their local communities.
Archbishop Oscar Romero devoted the end of his life to those who were crucified in the villages of El Salvador, with hope that they would move from crucifixion to resurrection. Inspired by his prophetic witness, Project Dignitas prayerfully invites participants to understand how Christ suffers in their communities, that they may journey with Christ through the Paschal Mystery and into resurrection.
Please support us by promoting this program with your family, parish, and local communities. To schedule a Project Dignitas retreat for your parish, school, or social community, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
