Chicago-Detroit Jesuits in Peru.

I still plan to post something on the GOP primaries - hopefully I'll do so this coming Monday - but, in the meantime, here's a plug for a worthy cause. Since 1958, Jesuits from what is now the Chicago-Detroit Province of the Society of Jesus have been living and working in Peru in collaboration with Peruvian Jesuits and the local Church. More than forty Chicago-Detroit Jesuits have been missioned to Peru, some staying for a few years and others remaining for a lifetime.

The above video offers a glimpse of the work that the Society of Jesus is doing in Peru, focusing on several Chicago-Detroit Jesuits who arrived in the country decades ago as young scholastics and have chosen to devote their lives to serving the Church there. I met each of these men and saw the places where they work when I visited Peru as a novice, so watching this video brings back memories for me. To learn more about the works of the Society in Peru - and, if you're so inclined, about what you can do to help - take a look at the websites of the Chicago-Detroit Province and the Province of Peru. Please join also in praying for the Jesuits of Peru and those they serve. AMDG.
