A memorial Mass for former State’s Attorney John A. Connelly will be held Saturday, March 2 at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception on West Main Street. The ceremony begins at 10:00 a.m.

Connelly, the lead prosecutor in Waterbury Superior Court for 27 years, battled cancer until his death in September.

John was born on Feb. 6, 1949, son of the late John J. and Theresa (Ficeto) Connelly at Saint Mary's Hospital in Waterbury, Conn. He was a Navy veteran and proudly served the State of Connecticut and City of Waterbury for 33 years in various positions in the justice system.

Born and raised in the East End of Waterbury, he was a proud Waterburian. John's parents instilled in him the love of public service and citizenship, which served himself and the greater Waterbury community well.
