Dear friends in Christ,

I am pleased to present to you the Archdiocese of Hartford financial report for the year ending December 31, 2018.

The publication of this report is a reflection of the commitment that has been made to provide transparency and financial responsibility, as rightly expected of those entrusted with the administration of the Church’s temporal goods.

I am very grateful to the many capable and devoted individuals who work to ensure a high standard of financial stewardship in the Archdiocese. And I am especially grateful to all the donors among the Catholic people who by their generosity make it possible to continue the mission of our local Church in our long 175-year history.

May God bless us and our stewardship of His gifts so that we may continue to focus on the spiritual, moral and material needs of those whom we serve.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Leonard P. Blair
Archbishop of Hartford
