Memorial To Stanley Rother

The Catholic church building here dates back to 1547. Stanley Rother, an American priest, served in this church for 13 years before being murdered in the church by a death squad in 1981. He is remembered for his solidarity with the people of Guatemala, and he was inspirational for them in the time of civil war. You can read more about him by clicking here.
