New Auxiliary Bishop ordained – Belize

New Auxiliary Bishop ordained

 Bishop Christopher Glancy was ordained as an Auxiliary Bishop to the Roman Catholic Diocese on Saturday 5th May 2012. The ceremony was a well attended one and was held at the St John’s College in Belize City. Based on the order of administration within the Roman Catholic Church an auxiliary Bishop, is  an ordained minister or “bishop” as they are known. They are assigned to a diocese because the diocesan bishop who has been
entrusted with the care of the local church is unable to perform his functions. As you may be aware Monsignor Dorrick Wright was ordained as a Bishop back in 2002 and as of recent he has been plagued with health issues. However Bishop Wright continues to fulfill his daily duties as the Bishop of the Roman Catholic Church in Belize. Based on the ordination of the Bishop Glancy he will be an added support to Bishop Dorrick Wright and his work for the Roman Catholic Church.

Auxiliary Bishop – Belize

Pope Benedict XVI has appointed U.S. Viatorian Father Christopher Glancy as auxiliary bishop to Bishop Dorick Wright of the Diocese of Belize City-Belmopan in Belize.

 

Bishop-designate Glancy, 51, was born in Moline, Ill., in the Peoria Diocese and has worked in Belize since 1998.

Country information

Belize (formerly British Honduras until the name of the country was changed in 1973) lies on the eastern or Caribbean coast of Central America, bounded on the north and part of the west by Mexico, and on the south and the remainder of the west by Guatemala. The inner coastal waters are shallow and are sheltered by a line of coral reefs, dotted with islets called ‘cayes’, extending almost the entire length of the country.There is a low coastal plain, much of it covered with mangrove swamp, but the land rises gradually towards the interior. The Maya Mountains and the Cockscomb Range form the backbone of the southern half of the
country, the highest point being Doyle’s Delight (1124 meters above sea level) in the Cockscomb Range. The Cayo District in the west includes the Mountain Pine Ridge, ranging from 305 to around 914 metres above sea level. The northern districts contain considerable areas of tableland. There are many rivers, some of them navigable for short distances by shallow-draught vessels. A large part of the mainland is forest.
The area of the mainland and cayes is 8,867 square miles. The country’s greatest length from north to south is 280 kilometres and its greatest width is 109 kilometres. The climate is subtropical, tempered by trade winds. Temperatures in coastal districts range from about 10 °C (50°F) to about 35.6°C (96°F); inland the range is greater. Rainfall varies from an average of 1,295 millimetres in the north to 4,
445 millimetres in the extreme south. The dry season usually extends from February to May and there is sometimes a dry spell in August.
