Haiti Has a New Archbishop, Archbishop Guire Poulard

Since the death of Archbishop Joseph Serge Miot in the January 12 2010 Haiti earthquake, the Archdiocese of Port-au-Prince was left with no Archbishop. Yesterday, March 26 2011, Guire Poulard was officially installed as the Archbishop of Port-au-Prince.

His first message to the Haitian people...

"We must help rebuild the church AND Haiti... We should not rely exclusively on external support to rebuild our own country, we must first focus on our own strength and abilities..."

Archbishop Guire Poulard became an ordained priest back in June 1972. In 1988 he was ordained bishop of Jacmel. Then in 2009 he was appointed bishop of Les Cayes.

On January 12, 2011, on the first anniversary date of the Haiti earthquake, Pope Benedict XVI appointed Guire Poulard as the Archbishop of Port-au-Prince. Yesterday, March 26 2011, he as officially installed.
