We begin each morning with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Afterwards we receive our work assignments. The parish coordinates a wide arrange of charitable works, including (but not limited to):

  • Helping at an orphanage
  • Distributing food to poor
  • Building houses
  • Teaching English in the parish school
  • Assisting with work at the hospice
  • Assisting in the parish’s free clinic.

Each missionary will have the chance to participate in a variety of different works of mercy.

All the while, we form strong friendships and, most importantly, we grow in our love for Christ by serving the poor.

We conclude our days with recreation, spiritual conferences, the praying of the rosary, and time for discussion and reflection.

The trip concludes with a pilgrimage to visit some of the relics of Peru’s five canonized saints: St. Martin DePorres, St. Rose of Lima, St. Francis Solanus, St. Toribius de Mongrevejo, and St. John Macias.
