By Bishop Leonard Paul Blair

After 10 years as the Catholic Bishop of the Toledo Diocese, Pope Francis has appointed me to a new assignment as the Archbishop of Hartford, Connecticut.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all the many people of good will in our community - Catholics and non-Catholics alike - who, in good times and bad, have extended to me their understanding and support, their friendship and prayers.

And if I have offended anyone in the exercise of my ministry, I certainly ask their pardon.

The Toledo Diocese will always be an important part of my life. I ask God for an abundance of spiritual and material blessings on all of you and this community. Please pray for me. Thank you, and God bless you.
