New Diocesan Leadership Centre

With the help of its friends of Christ Church Plano, the Anglican Church of Peru is buying a former school with a chapel to house its Seminary and other central diocesan ministries.
If the purchase goes through, the Centre will be called the Christ the King Centre, and provide facilities for the Bishop's Office, the Seminary, the Diocesan Administration, the Consortium of Anglican Schools, Women's Ministry (AMA), Youth Ministry, and Pastoral and Discipleship Ministries.
It will also be home for the Ascension Mission, which will move from its present site in La Victoria.
The building has 13 large classrooms as well as common space for diocesan activities - retreats, youth events, synods and assemblies - and has two 5-a-side football pitches, a volley ball and basket ball court, as well as a fronton wall.
For the past years the Diocese has been under real pressure because of the lack of facilities for its central ministries and to find a facility of this quality, ready for us to move into, is a GIFT FROM GOD. Only He can do something of this order and it is of very great strategic importance as the Diocese continues to expand and grow.
All being well, we hope to move in before the end of May and then it will be all hands on deck as we prepare it for use - decorate and equip - and we shall need all the help of all the diocese, and our friends outside to enable us to do that.

Jesus Film in San Francisco

Children and adults watched the "Jesus" video in the San Francisco Mission on Good Friday evening. About 50 people were there for what was an inspiring time.
The mission meets in a church made of wicker sheets while they wait for earth moving equipment to come and enable building works to begin.
Luis Galvez is the leader of the mission team and works together with Maria Isabel Marentes y Sonia Chambi.
