The members of the Vicariate of Peru held a Mass via Zoom to mark the one month anniversary of the passing of Fr. Joe Girone, O.S.A., who served for five years in Trujillo, Peru. It is of religious custom in Peru to remember the recently deceased at Mass on their one week, one month and one year anniversaries. However, due to the COVID-19 quarantine restrictions, communities could not be together physically.

The Mass was presided by the Regional Superior (Vicar) Fr. Ramiro Castillo, O.S.A., from San José Obrero parish where Fr. Joe served.
