At the SIGNIS Board meeting, which took place at end of May 2015, in Port of Spain (Trinidad and Tobago) the Board approved the proposal to nominate the newly beatified Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Arnulfo Romero as patron of SIGNIS.

The SIGNIS Board chaired by President Gustavo Andjar decided to name Mgr Romero as Patron of SIGNIS The President of SIGNIS, Gustavo And jar, explained that Archbishop Romero stands as an example to Christian communicators, for his vibrant homilies in the Cathedral, broadcast by radio to the whole country.

In them, he spoke ceaselessly in defence of the poor and oppressed victims of the fratricidal violence that tore apart the nation.

There is nothing more inspiring than fixing our gaze on this extraordinary man, a martyr of the faith for the sake of Gods favourites, who are the poor. 

The original proposal came from Fr Peio Snchez of SIGNIS Spain, seconded by Fr Luis Garcia Orso (former Vice President of OCLACC, now SIGNIS Latin America and the Caribbean) and supported by the President of SIGNIS Latin America, Monica Villanueva.

This initiative reemphasises the mission of SIGNIS members to promote stories of hope through all media in order to transform cultures in the light of the Gospel by promoting human dignity, justice and reconciliation.
