A new bishop has been named for San Marcos!


His name is Monsignor Carlos Enrique Trinidad Gómez, originally from Guatemala City. Father Gómez was ordained in 1984. As a former rector of the seminary in Guatemala City, he knows our friends in the diocese of San Marcos well.

Padre Silverio Chum of El Rodeo said, “It seems to me that he will adapt to the pastoral work of the diocese… He has the spirit of working with people in the field, the poor. Surely there will be challenges, but he will have to respond to the reality of San Marcos. The ordination will be on Saturday, 31 January in San Marcos.”
