Care for Creation
Bishop Thomas urges all Catholics and people of good will to take the following steps:
The Holy Father, Pope Francis, named the Most Reverend Daniel E. Thomas as Apostolic Administrator of the Diocese of Cleveland in addition to his responsibilities as the Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Toledo. This appointment accompanied Pope Francis’ acceptance of the resignation of the Most Reverend Richard G. Lennon for health reasons. Bishop Thomas has served as the Bishop of Toledo since 22 October 2014 and will continue in this office as he also serves the Diocese of Cleveland.
Statement of Bishop Daniel E. Thomas
Holy Father, Pope Francis, has granted Catholic Diocese of Cleveland Bishop Richard Lennon early retirement status, accepting his resignation from the pastoral governance of the diocese. Bishop Lennon made the request for early retirement in a letter to Pope Francis in late November citing his ongoing health challenges as the reason for his decision to retire.
