THREE YEARS OF THE MISSION IN PERU
In February of this year he completed three years of the Pallottine mission in the province of Vilcashuamán - Ayacucho - Peru. When we arrived here the scenario was of abandonment both of the temples, and also of the faithful who did not have the presence of a priest for the sacraments and other necessary attentions to live and to strengthen their faith. In principle they were for us to attend only the three communities by the distance from one to another. Today we are serving the entire province that has almost four thousand kilometers in length. There were numerous sacraments held and patron saint celebrations held in all villages. The parish that did not have life, now has a new face. We have the presence of young people in the masses. We attend colleges with masses and talks for the preparation of the sacraments and human and religious values. With the arrival of Father Sergilson in February this year we have two Pallottine priests on the mission here in Peru. At the beginning of the mission, the parents lived in a settled house. But we fixed a house that was on the same land where you built the house "John Paul II". The house was very damaged but it was very beautiful.
THE HOUSE HOUSE "JUAN PABLO II"
Today I have a great feeling of gratitude for the boys who live in this orphanage and I was very sad to see that the boys were abandoned by the authorities. Thank God today we Pallottines are responsible for this house. They are the Pallottine sisters of India who take care of the house. They are directly responsible for the care of the children. Before that who maintained the house was the Government with an annual sum of ninety-one thousand (91) soles. And by an association that donates two thousand a month. Today who maintains the house is the Pallottines and the Ayacucho Emergency Association (A.E.A)
A cordial and fraternal greetings to all who support our mission here in Peru.
