Hartford’s Blair Among New Archbishops Recognized At Vatican Mass

(CBS Connecticut) –– Hartford Archbishop Leonard Blair was one of 25 new archbishops from around the world receiving the pallium Sunday from Pope Francis at the Vatican. A wool band placed over the shoulders, the pallium represents the connection of the archbishops to the pope, and is a sign of their authority.

The ceremony came during a mass marking the feast of Saints Peter and Paul at St. Peter’s Basilica.
