Chrism Mass at St Joseph Cathedral, Hartford, CT. Archbishop Henry Mansell, Principal Celebrant, Archbishop Emeritus Daniel Cronin and Bishop Christie Macaluso, Principal Concelebrants. The choir consisted of students from East Catholic, Northwest Catholic and St Paul high schools. The Cathedral was packed with Catholic students bused in from throughout the archdiocese. A larger than usual number of priests and deacons attended this year's Chrism Mass with overflow seating in use in the ambulatory chapels. Holy Thursday and Good Friday, Archbishop Henry Mansell, Principal Celebrant. Concelebrants were the parish priest of the Cathedral of St Joseph including Msgr Liptak - so wonderful to see him back - and Father Bill McCarthy, My Father's House, Moodus, CT. Easter Sunday, Archbishop Henry Mansell, Principal Celebrant. Lots and lots of families at the Mass - great to see. Beautiful and sacred music provided at the hands and direction of Dr. Ezequiel Menedez and the Cathedral of St Joseph Choir.
