Dear Parishioners and Friends,
On Monday, September 14th, our diocesan community begins a new chapter as The Most Reverend Edward C. Malesic assumes the cathedra (meaning, chair) and officially assumes the pastoral care and governance as the twelfth bishop since the Diocese of Cleveland was founded in 1847.
This special edition of our Sunday parish bulletin not only commemorates this momentous occasion but also gives us the opportunity to reflect upon the essential relationship between every member of the baptized and the bishop of a local Church.
Please be sure to join the diocesan community in the celebration of Bishop Malesic’s Installation Mass via live stream on Monday at 2:00pm. Go to dioceseofcleveland.org and select the live stream link.
Gathered with our local Shepherd, may we welcome this as a graced moment for the whole diocese, giving thanks to God for the gift of apostolic succession in fulfillment of Christ’s promise that he would remain with us until the end of the ages.
May the Lord continue to bless Bishop Malesic as he assumes his ministry here in Northeast Ohio!
Sincerely yours in Mary, Queen of the Apostles,
