It is with great regret that we have decided to cancel the entire Summer 2020 season of Resort Mission in Switzerland and Greece.
We look forward to restarting in the Swiss resorts in December with renewed hope and energy. We also plan to celebrate the 151st anniversary of St. Peter's, Zermatt in June 2021 with the same enthusiasm and gratitude as we had planned for the 150th anniversary!
