As we celebrate the 175th Anniversary of the Archdiocese, we look back… on July 15, 1872 when the first baptism was recorded at St. Peter's Church, New Britain. The child's name was, Joseph Graff.

Students at St. Rita School in Hamden, victors in a “Sock War” contest against Most Holy Trinity School in Wallingford, show off some of the 1,950 pairs of socks that they and their families have donated for homeless people.

Holy Trinity collected 1,009 pairs of socks. The contest ran from Jan. 20-Feb. 2.

Sister of Mercy Kathleen Kelly, principal at Most Holy Trinity School, said, “Our socks are off to the St. Rita School community. Together, we have made a difference.” (Photo submitted)
