Peggy O'Neill

Theology Professor

Sister Margaret "Peggy" O'Neill has dedicated her life to the causes of peace, justice and service to others. She went to EI Salvador during the country's brutal civil war to accompany a refugee community from Copapayo back to their homeland from a United Nations camp in Honduras. She essentially served as a human shield to help protect the refugees from the Salvadoran army. Peggy has remained in EI Salvador ever since. Known for her energy, determination, sense of humor and unflagging commitment to the community, she teaches the class of Liberation Theology for Casa students
