ARCHBISHOP CELEBRATES WITH FRANCISCANS
Archbishop Blair celebrated Mass on July 21st for the 40th anniversary of the founding of the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist in Meriden. The Mass was held in the Sisters' partially built new chapel. Six Sisters celebrating their jubilees of vows were honored. From left are Mother Rosemae Pender, Mother Foundress; Mother Miriam Seiferman, Vicar General; Mother Shaun Vergauwen, Mother General; Archbishop Blair and the jubilarians.
The Archdiocese of Hartford is encouraged by the Supreme Court decision in the Hobby Lobby case. Since the beginning, the position of the Archdiocese has been that no individual or employer should be forced to pay for health insurance that violates their religious beliefs. We will have to wait and examine carefully all of the details of the ruling; however, the ruling appears to affirm the religious freedom of Americans.
