The parish of St. Noel recently sent a letter to Cleveland Bishop, Nelson Perez, regarding the abuse scandal in the Catholic Church. The letter, dated October 6, 2018, came as a result of the parish-wide meeting held in September where 125 parishioners were able to express their thoughts, frustrations, and hopes.
At their next session, the Parish Pastoral Council drafted a letter to Bishop Perez advocating for change and transparency at the diocesan and national level.
“We as a parish stand with you in the desire to restore the credibility of our church so that the work of the gospel might continue among us.”
The letter was signed by Fr. George, the Parish Staff, the Parish Council and 318 members of the parish.
