Fr. Joe Mulligan to speak on Jesuit Martyrs of El Salvador

We are pleased to announce that Fr. Joe Mulligan, S.J. will be touring with Witness for Peace, from this Sunday, October 19th, through Thursday, October 23rd.

Fr. Mulligan’s talk is: "Martyrdom of the Jesuits."

A Jesuit priest originally from Detroit, Fr. Mulligan lives and works in Nicaragua with the Christian base communities. He is the author of The Jesuit Martyrs of El Salvador: Celebrating the Anniversaries (1994/2010), about the six Jesuits and two women massacred at the University of Central America in 1989. His presentation will focus on the lessons of the martyrs and their relevance today.

Fr. Mulligan is a tireless advocate for peace and justice. He served three months in prison for protesting the US Army School of the Americas (WHINSEC) at Fort Benning, Georgia. He accompanied peace delegations to Palestine (Michigan Peace Team) and Paraguay (SOA Watch). He advocates human treatment of the Guantanamo detainees. He is on the Advisory Board of CLASA (James Carney Latin American Solidarity Archive) and has worked diligently to shed light on the mysterious disappearance of Fr. Carney in Honduras in 1983.

Fr. Mulligan, who has lived in Central America for 25 years, was a friend of the Salvadoran Jesuit martyrs and also of Padre Guadalupe (James Carney, SJ) who was martyred in Honduras in 1983. (For those of you who saw Padre Melo last year, Padre Guadalupe was also a close personal friend of Padre Melo and his father. Padre Melo was the person who got Padre Guatalupe’s memoirs to his family in the US after he was murdered, memoirs that became the book To Be A Revolutionary.)

 Come and join us for this compelling speaker!
