In order to provide for the pastoral care of the people of God in the Archdiocese of New Orleans, Archbishop Aymond, has appointed Fr. Cyril Buyeera, until now Parochial Vicar of St. Maria Goretti, as the pastor of Ascension of Our Lord, LaPlace, effective July 1, 2021. Fr. Raphael Kasele, FMH, currently Parochial Vicar of Resurrection of Our Lord, will become the Parochial Vicar of St. Maria Goretti on July 1st.

We give thanks to God for the years of service Fr. Cyril has provided to St. Maria Goretti, for his care and friendship with Msgr. Gauthreaux, and his assistance with Fr. Daniel as he transitioned as pastor. Fr. Cyril will be missed by all of us here. However, he will always have a home at St. Maria Goretti no matter where he is assigned in the world.

Fr. Daniel remarked, "Fr. Cyril has been a stabilizing presence here at St. Maria Goretti, in particular, during the death of Msgr. Gauthreaux and during the pandemic. I will miss his collaboration and ministering with him. I do rejoice though that I will not be alone in shepherding the flock of St. Maria Goretti. I look forward to ministering with Fr. Raphael, FMH.”
