53rd Annual Peru Mission Dinner

Our 2018 dinner was night to remember as we honored life – the life-giving, life-sustaining and life-affirming ministry of our Catholic medical missionaries in Chimbote, Peru.

53rd Annual Peru Mission Dinner

On Thursday, October 18, 2018, the Diocese of Pittsburgh and the Chimbote Foundation joyously celebrated our 53rd Annual Peru Mission Dinner! It was a night to remember as we honored 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, volunteered, once again, to be our dinner’s Master of Ceremonies. Two recently returned 2018 mission teams served as Honorary Hosts and were joined by four years of previous Mission Teams. 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.

We had a most amazing story to share in 2018. It came as the culmination of a three-year outpouring that began at our 50th Annual Peru Dinner. At the 2018 dinner, we heard 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]

Thank you to all who attended our 2018 dinner and those who continue to support these important missions.

The poorest of the poor in Chimbote thank you for your prayers and support!
