Diocesan House

Diocesan House is the name of a  circa-1900 converted residence in the West End of Hartford where the bishops and diocesan staff (except Camp Washington staff) had offices. A convention resolution in 2011 approved exploring a move to a more modern facility. Following a survey of the diocese, a committee explored options and settled on leasing a portion of a former ball bearing factory in Meriden. The space will be called, The Commons. It will include a vault for the archives (reduced in size now) and a chapel. Diocesan House was sold to individual buyers. The move out of Diocesan House into The Commons took place during Holy Week and Easter Week 2014. The Commons is open "to the public" effective April 28, 2014.
