I am pleased to announce that Archbishop Blair will present the St. Joseph Archdiocesan Medal of Appreciation to Peter and Linda Romano at a ceremony to be held this afternoon at the Cathedral of St. Joseph in Hartford. Peter and Linda have been dedicated parishioners here at St. Matthew for many years. Both serve as ushers at the Saturday evening Vigil Mass and Linda serves as sacristan. In addition they coordinate the monthly collection of food items for the local food pantry located at St. Ann Church here in Bristol. The parish family of St. Matthew offers our sincere congratulations to Peter and Linda on their reception of this prestigious award from Archbishop Blair.
