This weekend Sr. Monica and Sr. Ximena are being joined by eight parishioners on a mission trip to Peru where we will be serving those who are most in need and… we need your prayers!
The main focus in our mission trip this year will be serving the children of "The Joy in the Lord School", a school run by our Sisters in Peru that serves more than 100 children and teenagers with normal intelligence who suffer from different physical disabilities such as: cerebral palsy, myelomeningocele, muscular dystrophy, amputations, arthrogryposis and quadriplegia. Because most of them come from the poorest areas of the city, the school provides for them not only complete specialized schooling, but breakfast and lunch plus all the physical therapy they need.
During the week in Peru, we will also have a chance to visit and help a Foster Home our Sisters run in another part of the city and serve the most in need in a Shantytown where we will visit their homes and play and help catechize the children.
Our OLMC missionaries will be feeding poor children, helping to paint the school, celebrating a party with the foster children, visiting the poor in their homes and many more things. We are going to be visiting Christ in those who are most in need and serving and loving them.
Please join our missionary team in your prayers during this week as OLMC goes on mission to Peru!BACK TO LIST
