We are rebuilding our clinic, expanding our home visits and adding critical new services.


52nd Annual Peru Mission Dinner

Our 2017 event was a spectacular success with nearly 600 attendees! Even though the dinner is behind us, you can still help with your prayers and donations!


The Chimbote Foundation’s Mission

The Chimbote Foundation was created to provide a bridge of love, hope, faith and financial support to care for the poorest of the poor in Chimbote through the Center for Social Works – a maternity hospital, outpatient clinic, clinical laboratory, pharmacy and home for abandoned and neglected children – serving hundreds of thousands since the mid-1960s.


Witnessing Jesus in Chimbote:
Calling all the Messengers

Highlighting both the enormous impact of those priests and nuns who have served the mission over the past fifty years, and the new volunteers who are participating in the Foundation’s inaugural week-long mission trips, the 2016 Chimbote Mission video calls all of us as messengers to bear witness to the love, faith and needs of the poor in Chimbote.

Annual Missions to Chimbote

Our missionaries are doing Christ’s work in this far away land, and through His grace, are providing hope for the poor of Peru while sustaining them body and soul, and renewing their sense of dignity.

How You Can Get Involved

“By taking the walk together, you can ensure that the people of Chimbote will not walk the streets alone.”

— Bishop David A. Zubik

Scientists, like all human beings, will make decisions upon what ultimately gives meaning and value to their lives and to their work. This they will do well or poorly, with the reflective depth that theological wisdom can help them attain, or with an unconsidered absolutizing of their results beyond their reasonable and proper limits. – St. John Paul II

This week, we pray for the scientists in the lab, at the mission and throughout the world, who use their talents to glorify God.
