The Archdiocese of Hartford is investigating a possible Eucharistic miracle that occurred on March 5.

A priest at St. Thomas Catholic Church in Thomaston, Connecticut, has recently claimed that a Eucharistic miracle occurred at his parish on March 5.

According to WFSBNews, “[Fr. Joseph] Crowley said earlier this month, as a Eucharistic minister was handing out host … a miracle happened. The number of hosts that minister had actually went up instead of down.

The claim is that the parish was running out of consecrated hosts and were worried they would run out before the distribution of Communion was over.

Instead, their ciboria were re-filled miraculously, and by the end of Mass, they had the same or even more consecrated hosts as when they started.

Fr. Joseph Crawley said in a video, “It’s really, really cool when God does these things, and it’s really, really cool when we realize what he’s done, and it just happened today. Very powerful, very awesome, very real, very shocking. But also, it happens, and today it happened.”

The local bishop is the primary individual in charge of investigating an alleged miracle, which will be examined by various experts before an official pronouncement is made.

Even if this miracle is not officially recognized by the Church, the local parish’s faith has been renewed by this experience and Fr. Crawley says he is grateful for the chance to witness such an event.

Link to Blessed McGivney

Interestingly, the parish where the miracle was reported is the same church where Blessed Father Michael McGivney once served. Blessed McGivney is the founder of the Knights of Columbus and was beatified in 2020. His intercession was credited with a miracle: the healing of an unborn child from a life-threatening condition.
