Spotlight on Local History 

In November 1922, four Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary set sail to Lima, Peru to establish a school. It was the first permanent mission of the U.S. church in South America. In this talk to honor the centennial of the sisters’ missionary endeavors, Sister Annette Pelletier, IHM will recount the history of their remarkable work in education and ministry that continues to this day.
