Bishop Blair appointed Archbishop of Hartford, Conn.

Details at the Diocese website, click HERE.

A nice reference to local history by Bishop Blair at his press conference:

"... those who know their history will remember that a significant part of what is now the Diocese of Toledo was once the Western Reserve of the great State of Connecticut. Although Connecticut ceded sovereignty in the year 1800, there are still echoes of the past. And the name 'Firelands' still appears in parts of northern Ohio as another historical echo of the Connecticut connection.”
