BELMOPAN, Thurs. Mar. 12, 2015–Catholics in Belmopan and throughout the country join the members and staff of the Our Lady of Guadalupe Co-cathedral Parish in Belmopan in mourning the sudden death of the beloved Reverend Kurt Kasebeer, the pastor in charge of the parish in Belmopan. He died on Tuesday night at the Belmopan Hospital due to a massive heart attack.
Amandala was informed that Fr. Kurt, 72, had been feeling ill and was taken to the hospital.
Rev. Kurt had been the pastor in charge of the Our Lady of Guadalupe Co-cathedral Parish for the past four years.
He is remembered in the media for his weekly sermons that he used to conduct on Love FM and for leading a congregation of worshippers to the scene of a road traffic accident where Francesca Vera, 76, was killed on the Northern Highway in February, 2005.
Vera, at the time, was a member of the Divine Mercy Church when she was knocked down while crossing the highway between Miles 3 and 4 on the Philip Goldson Highway. Rev. Kurt went to the scene and said the last rites for her.
Rev. Kurt had also been the Reverend in charge of St. Joseph Parish in Belize City before he was transferred to Our Lady of Guadalupe Co-cathedral in 2010, where he remained until his sudden death on Tuesday.
He will be buried in Belmopan next Tuesday, March 17.
