San Ignacio, CAYO. November 13, 2016. CONTRIBUTED: Belize Chaplain Services (BCS) was established to provide compassionate pastoral care to those in spiritual and emotional need.

Currently, Belize Chaplain Services is creating partnerships with various faith-based groups of Belize, and an accord with both public and private hospitals and clinics, in order to respond to and assist the spiritual and emotional needs of the people of Belize.

The services will be provided in both populated and remote areas of the country.

BCS’ vision is to provide trained Chaplains on a 24/7 basis, in every city, town and village in Belize.

In so doing, BCS and its Chaplains, reaching out in love, will respect the dignity, culture, religious affiliation, language and worldview of those served.

While BCS’ initial focus is hospitals and private clinics, our goal is to have chaplains available to provide compassionate pastoral care in prisons, elder care centers, to our police and other security officers, as well as home care in remote areas of the country — essentially anywhere a Chaplain may be needed.

We will have trained and certified Chaplains at KHMH in January 2017, and in Belmopan a few months thereafter. We will then work our way to other areas of the country during 2017.

To become a trained and certified Chaplain, contact your Pastor or Religious Leader, or contact us directly at to receive an application.

We also have a Facebook page: “Belize Chaplain Services”.

Also, BCS is responsible for coordinating worship services at the new KHMH chapel.

Worship services are offered at either 11:00 a.m. or 3:00 p.m. each Sunday, and throughout the month.

The calendar is posted on the chapel doors, or you can contact Belize Chaplain Services for more information.

We would ask for your prayers and good thoughts as we progress our mission to provide compassionate care to all people of Belize.

    My name is Nick Dunn. I am a RN. I have worked in hospice care for the past ten years. Most recently in the urban poor context of Ethiopia. I am now looking for a different opportunity and place to serve. Are there opportunities to train chaplains and work as a Chaplain in Belize?
