Pope Francisco names new Bishop for Belize


Posted: Friday, January 27, 2017. 9:54 am CST.

By BBN Staff: Yesterday, the announcement was made of a new Catholic Bishop for Belize.

Pope Francisco named Dangriga native, Father Lawrence Nicasio as the new Bishop of Belize.

Nicasio was ordained as priest in 1989 and has served the Catholic church in many capacities including being the president of the Diocesan Priest Association and he is currently the pastor of the Holy Redeemer Cathedral in Belize City.

He succeeds Bishop Dorick Wright who is suffering from several health complications.

In May of 2012, Bishop Cristopher Glancy was consecrated and brought in as an auxiliary Bishop to assist Wright.

Since Bishop Wright is dealing with several illnesses, he will no longer serve as Bishop.

Nicasio will be officially installed as Bishop in May.
