Rev. Silvestre Romero to be next bishop of Diocese of Guatemala

Rev. Silvestre Romero to be next bishop of Diocese of Guatemala

Rev. Silvestre Romero was elected bishop coadjutor of the Diocese of Guatemala at its convention at the end of May in Guatemala City.  He is currently  Rector of St. Peter’s-San Pedro Church in Salem, Massachusetts. The Bishop of Massachusetts, Alan Gates said, “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.” Guatemala is one of five diocese in the Iglesia Anglicana de la Region Central de America, one of the newest provinces in the Anglican Communion. El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama are the other four diocese.

The current bishop of Guatemala, the Rt. Rev. Armando Guerra, made the following statement in his official statement to the other bishops on June 7:

Por este medio y con gran gozo y satisfacción les notifico que la Convención Extraordinaria IX convocada para los día 26 y 27 de Mayo en la Catedral Episcopal Santiago Apóstol con el propósito de elegir un Obispo Coadjutor para la Diócesis de Guatemala, se realizó y eligió al  R.P. Silvestre Enrique Romero León.

El Padre Silvestre Enrique Romero tiene 49 años y es actualmente el Rector de la Parroquia San Pedro en Salem Massachusetts, congregación y  Diócesis a las que les estamos muy agradecidos por habernos dado al Padre Romero.

En Cristo,
Rvdmo. Armando Roman Guerra Soria,
Obispo Diocesano

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
