Bishop Richard G. Lennon of Cleveland named pastor assignments Tuesday afternoon for four more parishes as they and others move closer to full restoration.
Each of the four pastors will begin their new assignments July 16.
The announcement leaves only two parishes -- St. Peter and St. Emeric parishes in Cleveland -- without new pastors among the 11 parishes that successfully appealed to the Vatican's Congregation for the Clergy to reopen their churches. Since August 2010 parishioners of St. Peter had broken away and formed their own community while their appeal moved through the Vatican.
Lennon had announced five previous assignments June 27.
The Congregation for the Clergy ruled in early March that Lennon erred procedurally and substantively in his closing of the appealing parishes.
