Црква свете Тројице је основана од стране руске емиграције, али су у њеној градњи помагали и православни вјерници са простора Српске Патријаршије. У овој цркви је једно вријеме служио и свештеник Србин. Ово је, за сада, једина православна црква у Лими.
Metropolitan met and spoke with ambassador of Greece Mr. Hatsopoulos and with the top people of Energoprojekt and with them spoke about the ways how to help the Orthodox community in Peru.
