Blair, who in December 2013 became Archbishop of Hartford, Connecticut. Since then, the Reverend Charles Ritter has served as Diocesan Administrator.
Bishop Thomas will be installed as Bishop of Toledo at a Mass to be celebrated on October 22, 2014, at 2 p.m. at Our Lady, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Cathedral, 2535 Collingwood Boulevard, Toledo. Bishop Thomas comes to Toledo with a wealth of credentials and experience, including a licentiate in Sacred Theology (S.T.L.) from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome.
