Lennon relents on 12

Richard Lennon after defending his reconfiguration plan, and alluding that it was in the contemporary spirit of the age, throughout the land*, to close parishes, said he would not exercise his right to appeal Vatican decrees. People were prompted to believe there were thirteen parishes. He listed twelve parishes that he will restore:

St. Mary Akron
St. John the Baptist Akron
St. Mary Bedford
St. Adalbert Cleveland
St. Barbara Cleveland

St. Casimir Cleveland
St. Emeric Cleveland
St. Patrick Cleveland
St. Peter Cleveland
St. Wendelin Cleveland

St. James Lakewood
St. Mary Parish Lorain (which has remained open, but was 'merged' with the closed Holy Trinity)

Previously, Lennon mentioned fourteen, and released a list of 14 on January 9, 2012 at the Museum of Imprisoned Statues (formerly St. Hedwig, Lakewood). That list contained: the open parish of St. Martha in Akron, which is listed as Blessed Trinity; and St. Margaret Mary in South Euclid, which was certain of their successful appeal.
He still needs work with geography. In January he did not know Cleveland was in the Middle West, to-day he placed Buffalo there.
