ANNOUNCEMENT OF NEW BISHOP-ELECT
MICHAEL G. DUCA
The Vatican announced that Pope Francis has appointed Bishop Michael Gerard Duca, currently Bishop of the Diocese of Shreveport, LA, as the new bishop of the Diocese of Baton Rouge, LA. Bishop Duca succeeds Bishop Robert W. Muench, who is retiring.
Bishop Duca has been Bishop of Shreveport since May 19, 2008. Bishop Muench has been Bishop of Baton Rouge since March 14, 2002. Bishop Muench celebrated his 75th birthday on December 28, 2017, and pursuant to Canon Law (the law of the Catholic Church), submitted his resignation to the Holy Father on that date. He has continued to serve as Bishop of Baton Rouge pending the Pope’s acceptance of his resignation and the naming of his successor.
Bishop-elect Duca is scheduled to be installed as the sixth Bishop of Baton Rouge on Friday, August 24, 2018, at 2:00 p.m. at St. Joseph Cathedral.
