Located in one of the poorest areas of the small but bustling Belize City, St. Martin de Porres Parish nonetheless thrives as a church, school, and heart of the community. In August of 2011, Fr. Matt Ruhl (founder and fearless leader of the 2010 Cycling for Change ride) had just recently moved to Belize and taken over as pastor of the parish. There was a certain hum of energy as preparations for the school year began and Fr. Matt began sharing his dreams and plans of growing the parish.
