Rector of English-speaking church resigns

The small congregation at St. Mark’s Anglican Church in Guadalajara has accepted the resignation of its pastor of nine years, Manuel Sonora.

“I felt much honored to be the first Mexican priest to be in charge of an English speaking parish,” Sonora said, referring to the beginning of his ministry at St. Mark’s in Septemeber, 2003. When he accepted the position, he moved to Guadalajara from Mexico City, where he was General Secretary of the Anglican Church in the Province of Mexico. In earlier decades, he had been a Methodist minister and high-school English teacher.

“He was willing to do many things for people in the community whether he knew them or not,” said St. Mark’s parishioner Nancy Brasch.
