Bishop Glancy recalled to Belize

New Auxiliary Bishop for Belize gets surprise announcement
Bishop-delegate Christopher Glancy

Bishop-designate Christopher Glancy was just settling in at a Chicago parish staffed by his religious order, the Viatorians, after having spent 12 years in Belize in Central America, when the vatican asked him to return to become the new bishop of the nationwide Diocese of Belize City-Belmopan.
