A Message from Father Mark Jette
Marriage anniversaries are living signs that marriage vows can be lived in good times and bad times, in sickness and health, for 10 years, 25 years, 50 years, and more. We congratulate our anniversary couples and thank them for their witness to living their marriage vows. May God send down His blessings upon them and continue to walk with them on the journey of marriage.

NEW AUXILIARY BISHOP
Bishop Juan Miguel Betancourt will be ordained a bishop on October 18 at St. Joseph Cathedral in Hartford. He will serve our archdiocese as an auxiliary bishop. Bishop Betancourt comes to Hartford from the Archdiocese of St. Paul in Minnesota. He was born in Puerto Rico and studied at the Catholic University of Puerto Rico and at the Pontifical Biblical Institute in Rome. He is fluent in English, Spanish, and Italian. In Minnesota, he served as Professor and Dean of the Diocesan Seminary and as Pastor of the Church of St. Francis de Sales in St. Paul. We join with all in the Archdiocese of Hartford in welcoming Bishop Betancourt and pray for God’s blessings upon him in his new ministry as bishop.
