Letter to parents/guardians from Dr. Hoyt

Fall 2014

Dear Parents/Guardians:

The Catholic Church teaches that the primary duty of education for young people rests with their parents/guardians. “Parents [Guardians] have the first responsibility for the education of their children in the faith, prayer and all the virtues. They have the duty to provide as far as possible for the physical and spiritual needs of their children” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, #2252).

In his last words to the apostles, Jesus gave them a mission: "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you" (Mt 28:19-20). Only with the sustaining power of God’s grace can this earthen vessel of Catholic school education continue to be a means for carrying forth this command by Jesus Christ.

The school’s leadership team and faculty are committed to providing a safe, nurturing environment where young people encounter the living God, foster a culture of spiritual and academic excellence, build minds, form hearts, and transform lives. Essential to the work of the Catholic school is a seamless partnership with parents/guardians. Together in mission, the young person benefits knowing that there is a positive partnership between the home and the school.

We know you have a choice in your child’s education and we thank you for choosing a Catholic school education in the Archdiocese of Hartford. We are committed to a purpose and vision that will set your child on the path for a lifetime of success.

As we begin the new school year, let us pray that your child(ren) and all the young people in Catholic schools experience The Joy of the Gospel that will expand their faith; that will allow them to express the love of God freely.

Peace in Christ Jesus,

 

Dale R. Hoyt, Ed.D.

Welcome Archbishop Blair

Our Community rejoices in welcoming our new Archbishop, Leonard P. Blair.

What follows is the January Archbishop Blair's Column as published in The Transcript:

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

As your new Archbishop, I would like to share with you, in slightly edited form, the homily I gave at my installation in the cathedral on Dec. 16. It expresses very well what continues to be in my mind and heart as I begin my ministry. I look forward to getting to know this great archdiocese and all of you. Please keep me in your prayers. And may you be blessed with a happy and healthy New Year.
– Archbishop Blair

There are three words I would like to share with you – memory, mission and ministry.

First: memory.
As the 13th bishop and fifth archbishop of Hartford, I think of all the clergy who have served God’s people so generously over the years, and today, in particular, of Archbishop Henry Mansell, who, like Archbishop Cronin and my other predecessors, has given his all for the good of this local Church.
I think, too, of the men and women religious, and the generations of laity in Connecticut, who have lived their Catholic faith devotedly, even heroically, and have gone before us to God.
