Postcard from Peruvian Mission

Photos by Fr. Nick Harding, OMI

Fr. Nick Harding, OMI, was born in the U.S. and became a Missionary Oblate here. After serving several years in the U.S. Mission of La Morita, Mexico, Fr. Nick went to Peru and is now attached to the delegation of Peru. Nevertheless, he continues to send photos and news of his work in the mountains of Peru to friends and family here in the states. We think of them as “Postcards from the Missions.”

Fr. Nick’s photo captions are in Spansih and English, so they are presented as he provided them.
