Anglican Church of the Central America Region
The Rt Revd Martin Barahona, Bishop of El Salvador, was elected the new Archbishop of the Anglican Church of the Central America Region
(IARCA) on Saturday, 13 April in Guatemala City at the Second Synod of the Province. He will follow the Rt Revd Cornelius Wilson, Bishop
of Costa Rica, who was the first archbishop of the region. IARCA officially came into being in 1998, after the 1997 ECUSA General Convention
vote that permitted the formation of this new province, comprising former dioceses of US Province Nine. IARCA's five members are the Churches
of El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama and Costa Rica. Bishop Barahona has been bishop of El Salvador since March 1992 and is the
first Salvadoran to be bishop of the Anglican Church of El Salvador. His installation as archbishop will take place at the pro-cathedral
of San Juan, in San Salvador, on 24 August 2002.
