Catholic history in Cleveland will be made on Tuesday afternoon.

That’s when Bishop Nelson Perez will be installed as the 11th Bishop of the Cleveland Diocese.

On Monday evening, it was a “pre-installment prayer service” at Cleveland’s iconic St. John’s Cathedral. The pews were packed for evening Vespers on the eve of the installment of 56-year-old  Bishop Nelson Perez.

The man about to be at the helm of nearly 700,000 Catholics told the standing room only crowd, “Miracles happen when we come together.  When people come together in faith and prayer and hope and a common vision.  With charity and compassion in their hearts, powerful things happen,” said Bishop Perez.

Perez will be the first Hispanic to ever serve as Bishop of the Cleveland Diocese
