HISTORY PROFESSOR TO PARTICIPATE IN COMMEMORATING DEATHS OF FOUR MISSIONARIES


10/21/2005

Pittsburgh, PA -- Edward Brett, professor of history at La Roche College, will be one of the key presenters at the upcoming “Day of Remembrance” to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the murders of four missionaries in Central America. Hosted by The Sisters of Divine Providence, the event will be held at the Kearns Spirituality Center on Wednesday, November 1 from 10:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Brett co-authored the award-winning book Murdered in Central America. The book deals in part with the deaths of Sisters Dorothy Kazel, Ita Ford, and Maura Clarke, along with lay missionary Jean Donovan, who were killed during missionary work in El Salvador in 1980. Father Paul Schindler and Sister Christine Rody were working with the former missionaries at the time and will also offer presentations at the “Day of Recollection.”
