New leaders across Central America

From ACNS-

Change is underway among the leadership of the Anglican Church in Central America. Three of its five dioceses are electing new bishops.

The Diocese of Guatamala chose Revd Silvestre Enrique Romero Leon at its Extraordinary Convention in May. Revd Silvestre is married and has three children. He is the son of the Rt Revd Silvestre Romero Palma, a former Bishop of Belize. He has also served in the Diocese of Belize, as well as the Dioceses of Spokane and the Camino Real in the United States. He was also a member of the Executive Council of the Episcopal Church. He is currently Rector of St. Peter Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Massachusetts.

The celebration of ordination and consecration of the Coadjutor Bishop is expected to take place in November and the installation as Diocesan Bishop in October 2018, when Bishop Armando Guerra Soria will be retiring.

Change is coming in Costa Rica too, where Bishop Hector Monterroso has left to join the Diocese of Texas. It is one of two dioceses that maintain a companion relationship with Costa Rica.
