From Massachusetts (Guatemala)-

The Rev. Silvestre Romero, Rector of St. Peter's-San Pedro Church in Salem, was elected bishop coadjutor of the Diocese of Guatemala during its May 26-27 convention held at the Catedral de Santiago ApĆ³stol in Guatemala City.  Pending the consent process, Romero will succeed the current bishop, the Rt. Rev. Armando Guerra.

"We rejoice at Silvestre's election in Guatemala, and extend our prayers for their future partnership as diocese and bishop.  Silvestre and his family will be greatly missed here in the Diocese of Massachusetts," Bishop Alan M. Gates said.
