Gerard Adams, a member of our Fr. Vincent R. Capadano Squires circle, plans to participate in a mission trip with the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter later this year and is seeking your financial support. He needs to raise $2,350 in order to participate.
The aim of this mission is to spread the Faith through making the Mass more readily available. The missionaries do a wide variety of good works and projects while working in Peru. While in the town of Piura working at the Parish of Santisimo Sacramento, Gerard will be helping with a variety of projects including:
- delivering food and clothing to poor people who are sponsored by American families
- helping at the orphanages and school that the parish supports
- building chapels and houses
- visiting homes and getting to know the life of the parish
- introducing the Traditional Latin Mass to the town of Piura
Additionally, this mission will afford him the opportunity to visit Lima and make a pilgrimage to the shrines of several saints who are buried there, including St. Rose of Lima and St. Martin de Porres. This is a great opportunity to take part in His service and show God’s people the love they are meant to encounter every day.
