Plenty of changes have occurred in the last year inside the bishop’s office in the Archdiocese of Cleveland. First, Bishop Richard Lennon passed away in October after a long battle with dementia. Then in January, his successor, Bishop Nelson Perez, was called to serve the Diocese of Philadelphia.

Come September 14th, the diocese will welcome in a new bishop, and that is Edward Malesic, formerly of the Diocese of Greensburg. Born in Harrisburg, Bishop Malesic talked to the Ray Horner Morning Show about his background and upbringing, where he was not called by the Lord to enter the priesthood until college. And when he became a priest, he never envisioned himself as the bishop of a diocese.

Bishop Malesic talked about how the church has been present in the community’s lives, even if the doors to the facilities were closed for two months, during the pandemic. On the topic of the pandemic, he also shared his thoughts and ideas on the local Catholic schools and how to safely reopen them for the fall.
