52nd Annual Peru Mission Dinner Recap
Last year’s proceeds were restricted to help cover the annual operating subsidy of $20,000 per month ($240,000 per year) to underwrite the expenses of keeping a first-rate Catholic medical mission complex operating day in and day out, 356 days a year. Organizers in the Diocesan Missions and Stewardship Offices estimated that the dinner this year will net more than $100,000 toward this purpose.
One of the region’s most trusted news anchors, Mike Clark of WTAE-TV, again served as Master of Ceremonies. Mike has been to Chimbote with Bishop Zubik and serves on the Chimbote Foundation Board of Directors. His passion for the mission, his professional eloquence and humor always make for a warm and memorable evening.
