SOLT Belize Mission Trip 2023
This May 26-June 7, 2023 15 young missionaries from across the US will set out on the adventure of a lifetime! Joining SOLT priests, brothers and sisters, the team will travel to our SOLT missions in Belize, Central America and serve with us in areas of deepest apostolic need. Since 1969, SOLT has served in Benque Viejo del Carmen, a town located about a mile from the Belize-Guatemala border, a 2-hour drive west from the port of Belize City. Today, SOLT has missions in Benque Viejo, across the border in Melchor, Guatemala, at Divine Mercy parish in Belize City, and on the island of San Pedro, Belize.
Serving alongside the SOLT teams already present in Belize, the missionaries will engage in many of the corporal and spiritual works of mercy, bringing a jolt of enthusiasm and generosity to the stability of the service already present there. The visiting missionaries will have the opportunity to meet our year-long SOLT Missionary Volunteers, who have devoted a year of their lives to the students at Mount Carmel High School and John Paul II Junior College.
