Two Cleveland Catholic elementary schools are being saved from closure by a management organization that has successfully operated seven similar schools in New York City. Partnership Schools will take over operation of the two schools next month. 

Partnership Schools assistant superintendent Christian Dallavais says Archbishop Lyke and St. Thomas Aquinas, both K-8 schools, fit their mission.

Catholic Churches in Northeast Ohio are open again for in-person masses. But the services look quite different.

The Cleveland Diocese has set guidelines for social distancing, such as wearing masks and blocking off pews.

Karol Kirk attends St. Eugene Catholic Church in Cuyahoga Falls and says she’s excited for a sense of community again, but the changes will take getting used to.

A small group of protesters wants the Cleveland Catholic Diocese to be more transparent with information about clergy sex abuse.

About a dozen people gathered in a light rain in front of the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist in downtown Cleveland on Saturday afternoon. The event came just days after the diocese said it’s compiling a list – going back decades – of priests who were removed from their posts due to allegations of child sex abuse.

The newly installed Bishop of the Cleveland Catholic Diocese – Nelson J. Perez – was in Akron today, introducing himself to people – especially young people – in Summit County.

Perez spoke and took questions for close to an hour from the crowd of more than 600 people. Many of them were from Akron-area parochial schools. When asked for his vision for youth ministry, the Bishop answered without hesitating.
