Celebrating 50 Years in Peru

The Sisters of Charity and the Christian Communities of Chiclayo, Cajamarca, Lima and Ilo will celebrate 50 years of our arrival in Chiclayo to begin our mission of evangelization and development of leadership within the community of believers.

The Communities send warm greetings and express their deep joy that we are celebrating this important moment in our mutual history.

The logo which they have designed expresses our journey together: 50 years of walking in solidarity and hope.┬áThe seed which was planted has grown and flourished in the Peruvian soil of the Christian Communities. (plant design is one of Sister Zelma’s drawings) The fire of charity and the message of the gospel took root in the hearts of loving people. Thus the mission spread from Chiclayo to Cajamarca, to Lima and finally to Ilo.

Sisters of Charity Federation at the United Nations

Who are we to praise thee —
But we call on all thy creation to praise thee —
the birds of the air, the inhabitants of the earth, and the depths of the sea, the mountains
and the valleys, and whatever thou hast made to praise, to bless, to declare thy glory.

Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton
