A Missionary in Peru Checks in with Pictures and a Note
Photos and story by Fr. Nicholas Harding, OMI
Greetings from Peru!
Penal Chincha: The parish is responsible for this prison that has 2400 men and women: I go to celebrate mass and hear confessions once a month at this giant prison in our parish area.
The mine in Chavín requested a blessing on May 1, “Workers’ Day” in San José Obrero. They asked me to bless the mine entrance and main refinery (gold , silver, copper, lead and zinc are all extracted). In the mine they process metals…
…but there is still air pollution.
A little school in the new human settlement August 15. Recent “land invasion” so school was just built … we will begin catechesis.
Thank you for all your support and prayers.
With our blessings and prayers,
Fr. Nicolás OMI, Fr. Leonardo OMI, Fr. Blaise OMI and all the members of his sister Parroquia Cristo Rey
