Archdiocese of Hartford: February 2010 Archives

Peter A Rosazza.jpgBishop Peter Anthony Rosazza, an auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Hartford, celebrates his 75th birthday today.

Our prayers are with him as he makes this milestone.

Bishop Rosazza was ordained a bishop in 1978 (31 yrs a bishop) at the age of 43 by the great Archbishop John Francis Whealon.

Since I am from New Haven, Bishop Peter (as he's known) is a legendary character. For one, he confirmed me in 1982 at Saint Stanislaus Church (New Haven, CT) and he's been a tireless advocate for those living on the margins of society (the poor, the immigrant, the widow). 

He's been known as a good preacher of the Gospel and attentive teacher of the faith. Significantly, Bishop Peter is also been a friend to the Communion and Liberation group of New Haven for which are we deeply grateful.

Happy 75th birthday Bishop Peter!
