OSCAR ROMERO COMMUNITY
26 Mar 2021
“Aspire not to have more, but to be more.” Saint Oscar Arnulfo Romero
The Oscar Romero Community is a youthful, faith-based movement led by Downside pupils.
The group meets once a week, with the support of Mr. O’Rourke, to discuss their key aims of identifying and promoting the importance of faith in sport at Downside based on our Benedictine values. Sport carries such huge importance and influence here; there are opportunities to take part in a variety of sporting activities every day of the week, from rugby and cricket to golf and kayaking.
During such a unique and challenging time, the importance of celebrating all aspects of our community is becoming more and more important. The Oscar Romero Community will look to play an important role in supporting this through weekly celebrations, House tournaments and the ultimate goal of reaching out to the wider community.
