Welcome to Our Lady of Angels

 Due to serious health issues, Fr. Russ Lowe has resigned from the Office of Pastor and requested permission to take sick leave in order that he may attend to his personal health and well-being.  Bishop Malesic has accepted his resignation and  granted him a Personal Leave of Absence – Sick Leave.  In light of Bishop Malesic’s responsibility to provide for the pastoral care of the people of Our Lady of Angels Parish he has appointed Fr. John Chlebo, Pastor, St. Christopher Parish, Rocky River to serve as Administrator of Our Lady of Angels Parish effective immediately.   Please continue to keep Fr. Lowe in your prayers. Letters of prayerful support for Fr. Lowe can be sent to the parish office where they will be forwarded to him. Bishop Malesic and the diocesan staff continue to keep all of you in our prayers during this time of transition. 
Our Lady of Angels Parish was established over 90 years ago by Franciscan priests in connection with a seminary for the training of Friars. Our Lady of Angels parish has been a landmark in Cleveland’s  Westpark neighborhood and continues to thrive, attract new members, and be called home for many current and former parishioners. In the 1980’s, the Franciscans left the parish, but their influence remains. Since that time, the Diocese of Cleveland has staffed the parish with three pastors: Fr. John Cregan, Fr. Jerome Duke, and  Fr. Russell Lowe.  Presently, the Administrator is Fr. John Chlebo.
