On Dec. 4th Bishop Leonard Blair celebrated his final public liturgy with the faithful here in the Diocese of Toledo. The Little Sisters from our Home attended and were able to say farewell to Bishop Blair, who has been appointed Archbishop of Hartford, Connecticut. Our Mother Superior, Sr. Cecilia, shared her thoughts on attending this liturgical celebration.
It was such an honor for me, personally, to be chosen to be the Lector at the Farewell Liturgy at the Cathedral last Wednesday evening. We Little Sisters are very grateful to Bishop Blair for his compassionate and sensitive leadership of the Church of Toledo. He was always so gracious and attentive when he would come to our Home for visits to our Residents and Sisters. We will miss him but we are also happy that he will find Little Sisters of the Poor in his new Archdiocese of Hartford. Our Connecticut Home is located in Enfield, CT.
