Hugo Castro Campos - Niño Jesús Chapter, Lima


Father Kyungsu Son poses with Bartimeo students and support team in front of the men’s prison in Lima, Peru.

Hello, we twenty Affiliates of Capítulo Niño Jesús are former catechists of the Parish of the Child Jesus, where Maryknoll Fathers worked in the past. We meet the first Sunday of each month.

We are collaborating and helping in a couple of areas. A group of us collaborates at Casa Bartimeo, which is directed by the Maryknoll father, Kyungsu Son, MM. There they train the visually impaired in massage therapy through both theory classes and practice.* In other projects, we work with elders and with young people at the secondary level of Colegio Estatal.

 

* See the article, “Casa Bartimeo, A light of hope for the blind in Peru,” in the March 2017 issue of 
Maryknoll Magazine. The above photo was reprinted from this article.
