Welcome to the Catholic Church of St. Monica
Pope Francis has appointed Bishop David P. Talley, auxiliary bishop of the Atlanta Archdiocese, to serve the people of the Diocese of Alexandria, Louisiana, as coadjutor bishop to Bishop Ronald P. Herzog, the bishop of that diocese. The appointment was announced Wednesday, Sept. 21.
In a statement, Archbishop Wilton D. Gregory said that the pope has given the people of the Diocese of Alexandria a “tremendous pastoral gift.” Archbishop Gregory said, “Bishop Talley is a servant minister of our Church, who is graced with extraordinary wisdom, patience, kindness, and dedication. He developed those gifts as priest and bishop here in the Archdiocese of Atlanta, where he always cared for our people as a true minister of mercy and kindness.” He added, “Thus he now begins this new appointment with exceptional credentials.”
As coadjutor bishop, Bishop Talley will assist Bishop Herzog, working in harmony with him in governance of the Alexandria Diocese. A coadjutor bishop has the right of succession, and so Bishop Talley will succeed Bishop Herzog at the time of his retirement. Bishop Herzog has served the Diocese of Alexandria as bishop since January 2005. The Alexandria Diocese, consisting of 13 counties, includes some 50 parishes, 22 missions and more than 44,000 Catholics.
Please join Father Jack in prayer for the peaceful repose of the soul of Deacon Edward David Rademacher.
