Our 2019 dinner will be held on Thursday, October 24, at the Duquesne Union Ballroom at Duquesne University, as we celebrate the birth of the 100,000th baby in the maternity hospital.

54th Annual Peru Mission Dinner

On Thursday, October 24, 2019, during our 54th Annual Peru Mission Dinner, the Diocese of Pittsburgh and the Chimbote Foundation will joyously celebrate the 100,000th birth at the maternity hospital! It will be a night to remember as we honor life – the life-giving, life-sustaining and life-affirming ministry of our Catholic medical missionaries in Chimbote, Peru.

Our dear friend of Chimbote, Mike Clark, distinguished news anchor for WTAE-TV, is volunteering, once again, to be our dinner’s Master of Ceremonies. Recent mission teams will serve as Dinner Hosts. They, too, have witnessed and shared the heartwarming stories of this amazing “Bridge of Love and Hope” that links two continents, two diocese and two peoples, all one in Jesus Christ.

Bishop LetterAt the 2019 dinner, we’ll hear from Chimbote what the schoolchildren and families of Pittsburgh have been able to accomplish when our hearts open to the call of Jesus in Saint Matthew’s Gospel, “Whatever you did for one of these least of mine, you did it for me!” [Mt 25:40]

Please note that the 2019 dinner is at a new location: the Duquesne Union Ballroom at Duquesne University.
