Pope Benedict XVI on Wednesday named, Mgr Guire Poulard, 69 years, as the new Archbishop of Port-au-Prince to replace Joseph Serge Miot, who was killed in the earthquake of 12 January. Moreover, the Supreme Pontiff chose to appoint Mgr Glandas Marie Erick Toussaint as auxiliary bishop of Port-au-Prince.

"It is now time to rebuild, not only physical structures but also civil, social and religious coexistence" said Benedict XVI in a message read at a Mass celebrated in front of the ruins of the cathedral by his envoy, the Cardinal Robert Sarah.

Born on January 5, 1942 at Lévêque (Petit-Goâve), Guire Poulard has spent the first twenty years of his Episcopate in Jacmel.
