Cleveland Diocese appoints five pastors for reopening churches

Six more pastors will be appointed later to other spared churches.

Cleveland's bishop has appointed pastors for five closed parishes spared by the Vatican.

Roman Catholic Bishop Richard Lennon announced the appointments Wednesday for St. Adalbert, St. Casimir and St. Barbara churches in Cleveland, St. John the Baptist in Akron and St. James in Lakewood.

Six more pastors will be appointed later to other spared churches.

Affected parishioners had challenged the closings and the Vatican ordered them reopened. In all, 50 churches of the Cleveland diocese either merged or were closed amid declining numbers of parishioners and priests and financial issues.

From The Diocese of Cleveland: 

  • Reverend Gary Chmura has been appointed Pastor of St. Adalbert parish in Cleveland effective Monday, 2 July 2012.

  • Reverend A. Jonathon Zingales has been appointed Pastor of St. John the Baptist parish in Akron effective Monday, 2 July, 2012.

  • Reverend Eric Orzech has been appointed Pastor of St. Casimir parish in Cleveland effective Monday, 9 July 2012.

  • Reverend Joseph Hilinski has been appointed Pastor of St. Barbara parish in Cleveland effective Monday, 16 July, 2012.

  • Reverend Joseph Workman has been appointed Pastor of St. James parish in Lakewood effective Monday, 23 July 2012.

 Each pastor will determine the date for the opening Mass for his parish.
