Belize’s eighth bishop laid to rest

The Funeral Mass for Bishop Emeritus Dorick McGowan Wright took place last Wednesday with a mobile procession at 9 a.m. which drove past the Catholic churches in Belize City.

The funeral service was held at the Holy Redeemer Cathedral at 10 a.m. and Bishop Wright was laid to rest in the Cathedral’s garden following the service. A breakingbelizenews.com article said that as social distancing measures are still in place, the Diocese will host a Memorial Mass at a later date, which will include simultaneous Masses at all parishes.

The Diocese also thanked the public for the support and prayers during this time and encouraged everyone to stay safe and continue practicing social distancing.
