International Mission Trip
This Chimbote Mission trip is designed for adults (18+), especially young adults and collegians. Older adults are welcome, but all must be in good health as the travel will be aggressive. As compared to other mission trips that the Diocese has offered to Chimbote recently, this one is contained within one week and two weekends, departing on Friday night and returning on Sunday morning in March, 2018. It coincides with several of our local college’s Spring Breaks, but obviously not all. The trip includes a day of acclamation and rest in Chimbote, three days of experience and mission work at the Maternidad and home visits to the barrios of Chimbote, a visit to Manchu Picchu, staying overnight in the high altitude city of Cusco, Peru, and hopeful to see the relics and home of St. Martin de Porres and St. Rose of Lima. Space is limited.
During the trip, we will have Mass every day except possibly one or two of the travel days with Father Kevin Poecking or a local priest in Peru. Fundraising for the trip will consist in personal letter writing and one event for the group’s translator expenses. Contact Father Kevin for more information by phone (412-793-4511). A non-refundable deposit of $100 will be required by mid-September. A Facebook group event is available.
