A nun and a priest are the first to be sent on a missionary project from Argentina to the Peruvian Amazon region.
The project is a joint initiative of the Argentine Bishops’ Conference and the Pontifical Mission Societies.
Sister Mayra Monsalve and Father Juan Manuel Ortiz de Rozas are the first missionaries to be sent, out of a total of eight, who will begin an evangelization mission in the Vicariate Apostolic of Puerto Maldonado.
On April 3, Bishop Alejandro Daniel Giorgi, an auxiliary bishop of Buenos Aires, offered a send-off Mass at Saint Mary of Bethany parish in the Almagro neighborhood of Buenos Aires. Fr. Jerzy Faliszek, the director of PMS Argentina, concelebrated.
