A hundred years ago, 1915, the Dominican sisters arrived in Peru from Spain to devote themselves to the pastoral and social care of the indigenous women of Amazonia, in the south of the country. They went there to assist the male Dominican missionaries who were already present with their pastoral work. The “José Pío Aza” Cultural Centre, managed by the Dominicans in the area of Puerto Maldonado, decided to commemorate the arrival of the women religious with a video: “The sisters were courageous, simple and strong, with a broad vision to understand the mission in its entirety. Commemorating their arrival and their precious contribution helps us once again to reflect and to rediscover our institute’s mission. It helps us to live our charism in a new way and to promote the new era we live in as the Dominican Family”.
