The Consortium of Catholic Educational Centers of Peru has honored the Order of the Pious Schools on our Jubilee Year and in recognition to the decision of the Order to begin our Piarist Ministry in the country. The act took place at the Meeting of the Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Chosica (where our first Piarist community is), and in the presence of Fr. General.
