History

It is in 1956 that the Quebec Foreign Mission Society (SME) arrives in Peru, more precisely in Pucallpa, Amazon. It then expanded to Ica, Lima and Carabayllo.

The SME has many accomplishments in Peru: schools, dispensaries, credit unions, youth centers, seminars for priesthood candidates, etc.

Today it remains engaged in social activities and parish pastoral activities in Pucallpa, Lima and Carabayllo, as well as in missionary animation and formation in Lima.
