St. Francis Xavier Mission Trip to Piura, Peru
As you are reading this post, young people from across the North American District are giving their time and talents serving the poor of Piura, Peru, with priests of the FSSP. The trip is one of the Fraternity’s St. Francis Xavier mission trips, which occur every year and give youth, families and individuals of all ages the opportunity to assist their brethren who live in poverty, to enrich their own spiritual lives through daily Mass and prayer, and to fully live out Christ’s command to love and serve.
The Peru trip is focused specifically on young people ages 16-21, for whom this trip is an opportunity, at such a formative stage in their young lives, to encounter Christ in His poor. Our volunteers arrived on July 21 and will return on August 2, and we have been privileged to receive updates and pictures documenting their experiences so far.
