Episcopal Diocese to Move out of Hartford

After a year of speculation, it is now official:  the Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut will move its offices out of Hartford.   The diocese has listed its headquarters for sale with William Raveis real estate for $745,000.    See the listing here:  http://ellynmarshall.raveis.com/mls/G636946/1335asylumave_hartford_ct/?AGT=3556&SITE=agt

Bishop James Curry told me the diocese plans to look for new, more modern offices in the Meriden/Rocky Hill area.    The church’s current 99 year old headquarters are in need of updating.

No word yet from Hartford Mayor Segarra as to whether the city plans to persuade the diocese to stay in the city by helping it find new offices.   The historic Christ Church Cathedral in the heart of downtown is the cathedral of the bishop.

  1. Why on earth would the good Bishop need newer, more ‘modern’ offices farther from our capital City and walking distance to his Cathedral? —
