Missionaries in their many forms have often been discussed and promoted on Sacred Space 102fm, so we would like to give a big Sacred Space hello to Fr's David Costello and Derek Leonard who are in Peru with the Society of St James the Apostle. Both David and Derek are diocesan priests who have answered a call to serve (with the blessing and prayers of their home diocese) in Peru amongst the at the parish of “El Resucitado".
The Missionary Society of St. James the Apostle, founded by Richard Cardinal Cushing in 1958, is an international organization of diocesan missionary priests who volunteer a minimum of five years of their priestly lives to service in Peru , Bolivia , and Ecuador. In our 50 years of service, the St. James Society has welcomed members from the United States as well as from Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Australia, New Zealand, and the Philippines.
