Father Ramon Moreno was born in Navarra, Spain in 1933. After becoming a novitiate he spent the next eight years in El Salvador and returned in 1970 to direct the Jesuit seminary. While there, he also taught at the UCA. Father Moreno went to Panama in 1976 to set up the Ignatian Center of Central America to promote Ignatian spirituality and returned to El Salvador in 1985. Father Moreno loved working with the poor and wished to be a priest in a rural parish.

Father Ramon Moreno was killed on November 16, 1989 along with seven others in El Salvador for refusing to stop voicing concerns over the human rights issues of the poor.
