Parish Leadership Transition

On Tuesday, May 31st, Fr. Dan Schlegel, Secretary and Vicar for Clergy, Diocese of Cleveland, addressed parishioners regarding the future of the parish. As you may know, Fr. Mike retired on June 7th as he reached the mandatory retirement age for priests. Bishop Edward Malesic has appointed Melissa Keegan, current Pastoral Associate, as Parish Life Coordinator effective June 7, 2022. Melissa has been in ministry at I.C. for 39 years and was certified as a Lay Ecclesial Minister for the Diocese of Cleveland by the late Bishop Anthony Pilla in 2000. As PLC, she will oversee all daily operations of the parish.

Masses and Confession: Fr. Mike has graciously agreed to serve as the Sacramental Priest for I.C., celebrating Mass and hearing Confessions as he has done so faithfully for 24 years here. Fr. Sam will also help with Mass coverage so we are very blessed and very grateful.

Let us keep one another in prayer as we go through this time of transition together.
