Vatican Orders Churches Reopened In a stunning move last week, the Vatican reversed the Cleveland Catholic Diocese's closing of 13 parishes. Bishop Richard Lennon closed 50 churches across Northeast Ohio due to shortages of priests and cash, but 13 parishes appealed to the Vatican. We'll examine when the churches might re-open, whether the Bishop will file an appeal, and why the Vatican took such an unusual step.
