Catholic Church to conduct mass at Belize Guatemala border

The Catholic church in Belize will be meeting with its counterpart from Guatemala  for a Mass to be held at the border. The mass will be held under the theme,” Neighbours seeking the way of peace”. The event is scheduled for this coming Saturday  June 18, 2016.  The objective of the event is to pray for a peaceful resolution of the differences between the two nations, and to help build stronger relations as neighbours. The Mass will begin at  10 a.m. at the border crossing near Benque and Melchor.  Priests from both Belize and Guatemala will participate but while Bishop Dorick Wright has expressed his support for the effort, he will not be able to attend.  This would be the second one of its kind as late last month, the National Evangelical Association of Belize also held a prayer time at the border with their Guatemalan counterparts./
