Belize Foundation Day!

Posted by Dana Hinton

September 1, 2021

Today, September 1, marks 46 years that the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth have been in ministry in Belize. When Mike Oliver, SJ, realized he needed the help of more Sisters, Jim Short, SJ contacted SCN Superior General, Barbara Thomas. As a result, 46 years ago, in 1975, Mary Lynn Fields, SCN, began ministry at Sacred Heart Parish in Dangriga.

Over the years, Sisters have come from the United States and India to serve in health care, education, lay ministry formation, social work, and service to the church. There have been missions in Punta Gorda and San Antonio in the Toledo district; San Ignacio, Belmopan, and Las Flores in the Cayo district; Belize City in the Belize district, and Independence in the Stann Creek district.

Happy Belize Foundation Day!
