A Farewell to our Mission in Arequipa

areq-children-photoshop

Medical Mission Sisters are celebrating their final Christmas season in Arequipa, Peru.  For over 40 years, our Sisters here have responded to the needs of those made poor, by offering a very popular pre-school education program, teaching women to sew and by being a healing presence to children with disabilities. In early 2017, these ministries will be turned over to local residents. We will continue to keep all with whom we have shared life in Arequipa in our hearts and in our prayers.
