Screen_Shot_2017-02-27_at_8.15.57_PMHundreds of Catholic parishioners and Belizean leaders today gathered in Belmopan City to bid farewell to Belize’s first local ordained as Bishop. The most Reverend Bishop Emeritus Osmond Peter Martin passed away on Thursday February 16th in his home town of Dangriga at the age of 86. Bishop O.P Martin had been struggling with the ailments of the aging process and died peacefully.


A state funeral was held for O.P Martin today at our Lady of Guadalupe Co-Cathedral in Belmopan where a host of government dignitaries and Catholic officials as well as family and friends gathered to celebrate the life of a pioneer in the Christian community. Official celebrants at today’s service in Belmopan included Auxiliary Bishop Christopher Clancy, Bishop Elect Lawrence Nicacio and outgoing Bishop Dorick Wright.


The Senator and Minister of Agriculture, Godwin Hulse, delivered a special address, speaking of the life of the late Bishop including his commitment to education and the preservation of Culture heritage in our country.

The official service ended at around five this evening with the interment at the Co- Cathedral’s grounds with full military honors.


A church service was also held today in Belize City in honor of Bishop Martin.
