Nine volunteers from St. John’s Hollywood, Maryland, left for a mission trip to Belize on Sunday, March 26, 2023. This group is collaborating with Hand in Hand Ministries there to build a house for a mother and her three children. On Saturday, the team received orientation from Brenda Gonzales, SCN, and Laverne Schaefer, SCNA, after which a commissioning ceremony was held during the liturgy at St. John’s.
