From the FSSP:

After the great success of last summer’s trip to the Dominican Republic -- and an outpouring of monetary support from Rorate readers -- we would like to announce our trip to Piura, Peru August 2-14, 2013. 

The trip is under the direction of
 seminarians from Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary and the chaplaincy of Fr. Rhone Lillard, F.S.S.P. Young men and women ages 16-21 can apply by visiting 

Relics of Saints Martin de Porres, Rose of Lima, and John Macias
Basilica and Convent of Our Lady of the Rosary 
("Santo Domingo"), Lima
The registration deadline is January 21st. Space on the trip is limited and will be granted on a first come first serve basis. Please also visit the website to learn more about the project and find out how to or register or donate. We hope to conclude the trip with a Solemn High Mass in Lima at the tomb of the great saints from that city. Contact: or (402) 882-0029. 

We are looking for applicants and
especially donors who want to help with this project.

  1. It's high time for missions, good to see the FSSP making efforts in that direction. It doesn't matter which country they go to, they are all in need of missionaries, North America and Europe maybe even more!

  2. We will pray for a successful mission! God bless all those involved.

  3. I was at Mass yesterday in San Marcelo,in Lima, Thanks for coming to Peru, I pray that is not the last time.
