The Catholic Diocese of Cleveland has announced a new bishop after the last one, Bishop Nelson Perez, had left back in January of 2020 for a position out-of-state.
Taking over for Perez is Bishop Edward C. Malesic, who arrives from Greensburg, Pennsylvania, where he had been in a similar position since 2015.
The news was made official by the Vatican as Malesic was introduced in Cleveland on July 16.
