BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Reverend Danny Roussel passed away on August 30.
Since that time, prayers have gone out to Fr. Danny, family, friends and members of the St. Aloysius community.
On Tuesday, St. Aloysius is providing information about funeral arrangements, a Diocesan memorial service and ‘Evening of Prayer for Father Danny’ below:
The family of Fr. Danny Roussel is preparing a private funeral Mass at St. James Church in St James. Due to the widespread community damage in that area after Hurricane Ida, attendance at the funeral Mass is by invitation only for both family members and clergy. After the local Church community has had a chance to rebuild and power is restored, a Diocesan memorial service will be scheduled and announced which will allow more people to attend. Also respecting the family, our ‘Evening of Prayer for Father Danny’ will follow these events, and is being planned at St. Aloysius for 6:30 PM on Wednesday, September 15, 2021.
St. Aloysius Catholic Church is located at 2025 Stuart Ave.
