New Auxiliary Bishop!!

Bishop Malesic announced that Pope Francis has appointed a priest of the Diocese of Cleveland, Fr. Michael Woost, as an auxiliary bishop for the diocese. Bishop-elect Woost will be ordained to the episcopate on August 4th at the Cathedral. A graduate of St. Ignatius High School, Borromeo and St. Mary Seminaries, ordained in 1984, he also earned a degree in sacred theology in 2000 from the Catholic University of America and has been teaching sacramental-liturgical theology as a faculty member at St. Mary Seminary and Graduate School of Theology. Interesting fact: He has two brothers who are also priests in our diocese – Fr. Dave and Fr. Tom Woost!
