H.E. Chibly Cardinal Langlois was born on November 29, 1958 in the Vallée de Jacmel, located in the southeast region of Haiti.

In 1985 he entered the Grand Séminaire Notre Dame de Port au Prince where he graduated with a degree of philosophy and theology. He was ordained a priest on September 22, 1991.

On April 8, 2004, Pope John Paul II appointed him Bishop of Fort Liberté, where he spent seven years. He was previously professor of Pastoral Theology at the Grand Séminaire Notre Dame in Port au Prince (Haiti) and professor at the Diocesan Institute for Human Education and Promotion in Jacmel (Haiti).

On August 15, 2011 he was appointed Bishop of Les Cayes, Haiti.

He became president of the Episcopal Conference of Haiti on December 15, 2011.

He succeeded the Metropolitan Archbishop of Cap Haitien, Monsignor Louis Kébreau.

According to Father Hans Alexander, Permanent Secretary of the Conference, who was interviewed by Radio Kiskeya, after the Plenary Assembly of Bishops, said: “Monsignor Langlois was honored for his commitment to the mission of the church and the teaching of catechism.”

As bishop and now cardinal, Cardinal Langlois is the head of a young Catholic church that is looking for a new place for itself in Haiti.

Continued Fr. Alexander, “Gone are the days of the bishops of Duvalier, gone are the days of the priests of the theology of liberation, one of whom, Jean Bertrand Aristide, who became President of the Republic of Haiti. “

We welcome a Church that has returned to the service of Rome and faithful Haitians.
