Invite Us In!
Speakers with first-hand stories from the Diocesan Mission in Chimbote are available to present at schools and parishes. Their hope is to engage audiences with the beautiful story of our “bridge of love and hope” in meeting the needs of the poor in Chimbote. From our early and humble beginning in the 1960s through more than a half century of loving and generous service, this story unfolds. The presentation also includes the many continuing needs of our Chimbote Mission and the responsibility that each and every one of us has to be a missionary for Jesus.
