As Lay Missionaries in The Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity we are called to bear witness to the mystery of Jesus and His saving love for men. We are called to love in truth, to greater action than just volunteerism or mere charity work in which we feed our ego and pride with achievements of good works. We are called to respond in small moments with great love, patience, strength, and most of all, self-gift. The appropriate response to a soul whose value is infinite is an infinite response of our self through love.
Our Lady of Mount Carmel High School was established in 1990 by Father John McHugh, SOLT to provide an affordable, quality, Catholic education for the young people of Benque Viejo del Carmen, Belize. The school began with only volunteer teachers and a one-room school building. Now the “miracle school” has a thriving campus, a full-time staff of Belizean teachers, and over 400 beautiful students. Each year, 10 to 15 missionary teachers come and serve the young men and women of Belize. This upcoming year I will be one of these missionary teachers pouring myself into the kids of this community.
