Bishop Perez hails from Miami, Florida, but has spent time in many places over the years and finally made his way to Cleveland in September 2017. A kind, joyous, and hard-working person, Bishop Perez enriches those ministries and people entrusted to his care. Rooted in Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation, “The Joy of the Gospel”, Bishop Perez’s pastoral vision can be summarized as: “Church on Mission: Proactive, Involved, Supportive, Fruitful, and Joyful” (The Joy of the Gospel, # 24, Pope Francis).

Young Catholic Professionals Background: Our mission calls upon the intercession of St. Joseph the Worker, our patron saint. Young professionals live and work in an environment of constant stimulation. St. Joseph reminds us of the importance of stillness, reflection, and prayer. To keep our mission prominent, the St. Joseph the Worker Prayer is read aloud at the conclusion of each and every event, reminding us to see all forms of work as true Christian work. To date, there are 16 YCP chapters throughout the U.S.A. from Cleveland to Silicon Valley.
