We are kicking off the 2018 Archbishop’s Annual Appeal. If you have not already, you will soon receive a letter from Archbishop Blair seeking your support. As Catholics in the Archdiocese of Hartford, we have a profound impact on our local communities, not only in the spiritual realm, but in the realm of social services, charities, and outreach services performed by, or with help from, our Church.

In the most recent edition of the Catholic Transcript, Archbishop Blair described the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal as the “bread and butter” fundraiser of Archdiocesan life. Whatever is collected for the Appeal in a given year is spent within that year, on programs such as our seminarians’ education and grants to approximately 250 local charities.

Please respond generously.
