Welcome to the web site of the Cathedral of Saint Joseph in Hartford, Connecticut.

As the Cathedral of the Archdiocese of Hartford, this beautiful church is the place where the local Archbishop presides over services attended by Catholics from throughout the Archdiocese. The Cathedral is also a parish in its own right, serving Catholics living in the Asylum Hill section of Hartford and in surrounding areas.

We are blessed with a beautiful environment for worship, one which features a superb four manual Austin pipe organ, exquisite stained glass windows crafted in Paris and a ceramic tile mural behind the altar that is the largest of its kind in the world. Even more importantly, the Cathedral parish, which includes parishioners born on every continent in the world, is a vital one offering many activities, a place where sacred music and social outreach play significant roles.

We hope that this web site will give you a flavor for the parish we treasure so dearly, will keep you apprised of the events occurring at the Cathedral and will persuade you to visit us in person.

The Most Reverend Leonard P. Blair
Archbishop of Hartford

The Reverend James A. Shanley
