What Will We Be About?
We will focus on meeting people, learning about other cultures, making friends and sharing faith, while we work side-by-side with people in need.
We will be working with local residents in Las Flores for home and school repairs. We will work in collaboration with our Sisters in Las Flores, Belize. Las Flores is located approximately 33 miles northwest of Belize City.

Expand Your Horizons
There is a saying in Belize that once you drink the water, you will return again and again and again…For the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and their associates, the above adage is the truth. 
The SCN ministry and presence began in Belize with Sister Mary Lynn Fields. In 1975, Mary Lynn heard the call to go to Belize. Today ten SCNs and over 30 local SCN Associates serve with the people of Belize. 
Belize, a beautiful Caribbean land with a population of 280,000, is located southeast of Mexico in Central America. Belize is a land of many cultures, the earliest being that of the great Mayan dynasties.
