St. X Church & Its Sister Parish in Peru
Since 2000, St. Xavier Church has had a twinning relationship with Nuestra Senora de Nazaret (Our Lady of Nazareth), a Jesuit parish located in the impoverished El Agostino neighborhood of Lima, Peru. The parish serves nearly 60,000 people through 11 chapels. As a Jesuit parish, it sponsors a variety of vocational, catechetical, and outreach programs.
In addition to an annual collection, St. Xavier Church members
make an annual mission trip to our sister parish in Peru. The Jesuits of the Peru and Chicago Provinces created the mission in the late 1950’s. Within a four square-mile area, the Jesuit parish has more than 130,000 parishioners. As it does throughout the world, the Jesuit community continues its dedication to helping these poor and struggling people. Although St. X Church plays a vital role in helping its sister parish through fund-raising activities, they need so much more. Our sister parish needs you.
