HARTFORD – While the Catholic church continues to deal with the ongoing sexual abuse scandals, the archdiocese of Hartford is reaching out to its parishioners.

Archbishop Leonard Blair will be offering three Masses of Reparation in the coming months around the state.

Nearly 50 church jurisdictions and religious orders across the United States have publicly named more than a thousand priests accused of abuse.

In a statement, the Archdiocese of Hartford says the church remains committed to doing what it can to help heal the victims. In a reparation statement  shared with clergy and staff, he said “What greater ‘outrage, sacrilege and indifference’ can be hurled at Christ, what greater betrayal, than that one of his priests should sexually violate a child or vulnerable adult?”

The mass times and locations are:

Sunday, January 27

2:00 p.m.
