Blessing of the First Stone of the Church of St. Josemaria Escriva, San Salvador, El Salvador (September 9, 2019)
Carlos Torrijos, Vicar of Opus Dei in El Salvador, blessed the first stone of the future church of St. Josemaría in the city of San Salvador. The event took place on the afternoon of Monday, December 9.
The Dueñas Herrera Foundation will build the church with a capacity for 200 people; it will also have an office area, a multipurpose room and a parking area.
“We give thanks to God and to the family members of the Dueñas Herrera Foundation who with their generosity have made possible this project that begins today. When we make an offering to God, especially one like this that is destined to give him public worship, he rewards us generously. God is a generous giver. He doesn’t allow himself to be outdone in generosity,” Rev. Torrijos pointed out.
