Welcome to the Greensburg Diocese, Bishop Edward Malesic
The Episcopal Ordination and Installation Mass for Bishop Edward C. Malesic was held on Monday, July 13, at Blessed Sacrament Cathedral. We welcome him to the Diocese of Greensburg. Please keep him in your prayers.
Bishop Malesic will be traveling throughout the Diocese of Greensburg to celebrate a series of “Local Masses” between July 21, 2015 and September 3, 2015.
The purpose of these gatherings is to afford Bishop an opportunity early in his Episcopal ministry to gather with the clergy and laity.
A schedule of the dates and locations of these celebrations is listed below.
The structure for these evenings will include Mass at 7:00 PM and a social open to the public following each Mass.
These evenings of celebration have been scheduled in a manner that will afford Bishop Malesic the opportunity to familiarize himself with the different geographical regions of our Diocese as well as provide venues that can accommodate a large number of attendants for both the Mass and Reception.
The schedule for these evening celebrations takes into account the reality that while most clergy and laity will choose to participate in a celebration that is in closest proximity to their parish, individuals may participate in a celebration on any date which bests fits their schedule.
No reservations are necessary to attend any of these Masses or receptions.
