Belize City Associates Gather

The Belize City SCNA group assembled recently, advancing their efforts in organizing activities and setting definitive dates to achieve the objectives they established for the year. These objectives were shaped by the resolutions made during the General Assembly, focusing on enhancing spiritual growth for personal and communal transformation, reinforcing the bonds within their community, addressing the needs of those facing oppression and marginalization, and advocating for peace and environmental sustainability. After approximately three monthly sessions dedicated to planning and strategizing, their mission continues to evolve. The Associates are enthusiastic about deepening their collective spiritual journey, initiating projects aimed at supporting those in need and contributing to the preservation of the environment.
