HARTFORD – Father Christopher M. Tiano has been appointed director of the Archdiocese of Hartford’s Office of Religious Education and Evangelization, formerly known as the Office of Religious Education.
The name change reflects Archbishop Henry Mansell’s desire to incorporate evangelization into the agency’s mission to be able to affect not only the present-day Catholics and future generations, but also Catholics who are not currently practicing their religion.
Six Sisters of St. Joseph of Chambery were honored recently by their religious community, located in West Hartford, for reaching milestone anniversaries of service to God and community. The honorees are, from left, Sisters Carole Mooney, Mary Louise Rouleau and Mary Jude Urgo, all marking 50 years; Sister Mary Forster, celebrating 70 years, and Sisters Sandra Shaw and Joan D’Amato, observing 60 years. The honorees served in fields related to health care as well as in education and social services. They continue to be engaged in full-, part-time or volunteer ministry that also includes prayer and presence to others and to the retired and infirm members of the community. (Photo submitted)
