Disguised as a priest, a DSS Internal Affairs agent who called himself Patrick Francis requested that Jessica Fletcher meet him at St. Jerome's Church in Hartford.

From Wikipedia:
Saint Jerome (Latin: Eusebius Sophronius Hieronymus; c.  347 – 30 September 420) was a Latin Christian priest, confessor, theologian and historian, who also became a Doctor of the Church. He was the son of Eusebius, born at Stridon, a village of Italian influence on the border of Dalmatia and Pannonia. He is best known for his translation of most of the Bible into Latin (the translation that became known as the Vulgate), and his commentaries on the Gospels. His list of writings is extensive. 

Known as the “protégé” of Pope Damasus I, who died in December of 384, Jerome became well known for outlining the type of lifestyle that was acceptable for Christians living in cosmopolitan centers like Rome. In many cases, he focused his attention to the lives of women and identified how a woman devoted to Jesus Christ should live her life. This concentration stemmed from his close patron relationships with several prominent female ascetics who were members of affluent Roman “senatorial families”.

He is recognised as a saint by the Roman Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Churches, the Lutheran Church, and the Church of England (Anglican Communion). Jerome is commemorated on 30 September with a memorial.

Just thought you'd like to know on his day of remembrance.....
