Rev. Caggiano spoke with Fox CT when he first learned he was the Bishop elect.
He said he would build on Bishop Lori’s legacy in his own way and concentrate on the youth of the Church.

The mass to install the most Rev. Caggiano starts in Trumbull at 1:30 p.m. at St. Theresa Church in Trumbull. The ceremony will be attended by Hartford Archbishop Henry Mansell.
