St. Barbara Church (Polish: Parafia św. Barbary w Cleveland), is a Catholic parish church in Cleveland, Ohio and part of the Diocese of Cleveland. It is located on Denison Ave. between West 16th St. and the southbound entrance to SR 176, in a part of the Brooklyn Centre neighborhood previously known in Polish as na Barbarowie.[3]

The church is a GNIS named feature.[4] The church, rectory and convent buildings are listed together as a Cleveland Designated Landmark.[1]

The parish was established in 1905.[5]

History

21st Century

On 4 April 2006, titular Bishop Richard Lennon was appointed Bishop of Cleveland by Pope Benedict XVI.[6]

On 7 March 2012, the Associated Press reported, in an article about the Congregation for the Clergy overruling the closing of 13 parishes, on the importance of this church to the inner city neighborhood.[7]

On 12 March 2012, the Diocesan Department of Communications announced that, "The Diocese has not formally received from the Vatican any decrees from the Congregation of Clergy concerning parish appeals; subsequently, no response is available at this time."[8]

On 14 March 2012, Lennon, through a press release from the Diocesan Department of Communications announced that, "As indicated in my previous statement, I promised to inform you when I had received from the Vatican Congregation for Clergy decrees associated with parish appeals. The decrees arrived on Wednesday, March 14, 2012. The process to review these rulings will now be undertaken with my advisors."[9]

Lennon announced, on 27 March 2012, that, "With the help of a number of advisors – including members of the clergy, laity and experts in church law – I am carefully studying and seeking to fully understand the decrees. I can assure you that this is not nearly as clear-cut as it may appear on the surface. Although the decrees are brief in length, they are deep in underlying meaning and I continue to receive significant input and clarification."[10]

On 27 June 2012, Lennon announced the appointment of Father Joseph Hilinski as Pastor of St. Barbara parish.[11]

The first Mass, since the church was reopened, was held on Sunday, 22 July 2012.[12]
