Legatus of Hartford formally chartered on December 11, 2015.
The chartering event began with Mass celebrated by Archbishop Blair at St. Patrick-St. Anthony Church in downtown Hartford. Chaplain Fr. Thomas Barry concelebrated.
After the chartering ceremony, the evening continued at The Society Room with dinner and remarks from Archbishop Blair, executive director John Hunt, and John Knowles, director of Legatus’ northeast region. The evening also included a Q&A “fireside chat” with Legatus founder Tom Monaghan and Founding president Bob O’Hara as moderator.
Bob O’Hara and his wife Rosanne were the first to sign up. “I was with the National Security Agency for 13 years, so I do a lot of research before I join,” O’Hara explained. “Bringing couples together for chapter events was an aspect that we found very attractive. That sold it for us.”
We are grateful to the Most Reverend Leonard P. Blair and his blessing of our efforts to grow Legatus in Hartford and the surrounding area.
We are eager to welcome those who have an interest to learn more about Legatus and consider joining an organization that combines a unique blending of our Catholic Faith and business ethics.
We will be posting our upcoming events sometime soon.
