.- The “Great Mission” to the Peruvian province of Carabaya ended this week, with more than 140 missionaries participating under the guidance of Bishop Kay Schmalhausen of Ayaviri and more than 1000 people receiving the Sacrament of Baptism.
The 140 missionaries, mostly young people from the movement Lumen Dei, came from Lima, Arequipa, Cuzco, and Tacna. They visited towns in the Peruvian Andes during the most of February.
The mission also provided local residents the chance to go to confession, receive the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick and allowed many couples to begin marriage preparation.
The Provincial Superior of Lumen Die, Father Emilio Acebedo, and other priests of the movement also participated in the final Mass.
