Mission Trips

JSerra offers two mission trips per year to our sister mission parish in Piura, Peru, taking a yearly total 80-plus students during Thanksgiving and Easter breaks:

  • November 16-24, 2018
  • March 22-30, 2019


Piura is affected by extreme poverty, but thanks to Fr. Joe Uhen, the pastor of Santisimio Sacramento Parish, temporary housing was created so that many individuals and groups all over the world may come and serve in his community. With the help of these missionaries, Fr. Joe has been able to provide additional necessary services to the area including as a hospice center and a trade school for individuals who cannot afford to attend college.

Our student missionaries build homes and schools, visit orphanages, provide homecare visits, and assemble and delivered food care packages to the poorest of the poor in the adjacent villages to parish. Mission trips are regularly spoken of as the highlight of many JSerra students’ careers, and provide up to 60-70 hours of Christian service per trip.


JSerra students may apply for a mission trip here. The deadline to apply is Friday, August 17, 2018. Freshmen are not eligible for the Peru Mission Trip.


For more information, contact Ms. Laura Kennedy at lkennedy@jserra.org.

This last April trip here was my eighth with JSerra. We built houses, delivered food, did cleanup after the floods from a month ago, taught English, and helped in the fields. We are truly blessed to be able to visit and thank Padre Jose for this opportunity to interact and help the Peruvian people.
