Our Mission in Peru

Like Chile, its neighbor to the south, Peru is a complex country with many ecosystems: mountains, desert, seashore, and everything in between. Our Missionaries have been in Peru since 1962.

In Lima, the Missionaries are pastors of two parishes, San Borja, and Nuestra Señora de la Luz (Our Lady of the Light). These parishes cover a huge territory, particularly Nuestra Señora de la Luz, which is in an economically challenged neighborhood. There, the parish provides many support services to its people.

Also in Lima, the Missionaries administer the Asociación San Jerónimo (St. Jerome Association), which provides educational resources to the country’s teachers.
