A Pilgrimage to Chimbote and Lima with Bishop David Zubik

Prayerfully consider joining Bishop David Zubik as we rededicate the “Bridge of Love & Hope” connecting the people of Pittsburgh and Chimbote, Peru.

For more than one-half century, generations of Pittsburgh schoolchildren and Mission Partners have built and sustained this Catholic healthcare outreach serving the poorest of the poor. Throughout our entire journey, we will appreciate the rich history, culture and faith traditions of Peru. ¡ es magnífico!

The people of Chimbote, Peru, love the people of Pittsburgh! And the feeling is mutual!

From the pioneer Missionary priests and sisters who arrived in the 1960s and stayed, to today’s volunteer Mission Teams, there is a love affair borne from Jesus’ words in the Gospel of Saint Matthew: “Whatever you do for the least of these, you do for me!”

Come and experience this gospel-inspired mission for yourself! From Lima, the nation’s capital, a world-class city of 12 million people, to our sister-diocese of Chimbote where we have built an internationally respected Catholic healthcare complex (maternity hospital, clinic, laboratory, orphanage and home visit outreach), we will experience the indescribable beauty and faith that is Peru. Join Bishop David Zubik and his brother-Bishop, Ángel Francisco Simón Piorno of Chimbote, as we celebrate a metaphorical bridge that links our two continents, two dioceses and two peoples in love and hope.
