3 more area churches reopen

NORTHEAST OHIO (WOIO) - Three more area churches will have their first masses at 11 a.m. Sunday.  St. Patrick's (West Park), St. Barbara's and St. Mary's all join St. Casimir and St. John the Baptist which reopened last Sunday.

The churches were closed by Bishop Richard Lennon, but the faithful church members sent letters to the Vatican pleading to overturn the closures.

The Vatican responded by ordering the churches reopen.

Here is the schedule set so far for the remaining churches:

St. James, Lakewood - Wednesday, July 25, 2012 @ 7:00 p.m.

St. Wendelin, Cleveland - Sunday, July 29, 2012 @ 11:00 a.m.

St. Adalbert, Cleveland - Sunday, August 12, 2012 @ 11:00 a.m.

St. Mary, Akron - Wednesday, August 15, 2012 @ 7:00 p.m.
