Members of a Brake the Cycle of Poverty planning meeting, in the basement of St. Bridget Church in Manchester, CT. This year’s ride through Connecticut to raise awareness of poverty in the state and nation begins at St Bridget’s  on Saturday, June 21, and concludes on Thursday, June 26, in Hartford. The itinerary includes some bodacious Litchfield hills!

Rosazza Faith and Justice Award at the organization’s annual conference, which is also named for the bishop, on June 14. In accepting the award, which recognizes John’s commitment to social justice, he especially thanked his wife, who he said has practically convinced him that “God loves me very much.”
