Long Island Catholics marked the 35th anniversary of  the death of  Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Romero with a Mass at Our Lady of the  Miraculous Medal Church in Wyandanch.  The prelate was shot and killed March 24, 1980, as he celebrated Mass in San Salvador.  In February Pope Francis declared that Archbishop Romero was a martyr for the faith, clearing the way for his beatification.
