The board of Trustees is pleased to announce the appointment of Robert J. Kloos as Pastor/Administrator of the Community of Saint Peter effective September 10, 2017.
Bob Kloos received a Master of Divinity degree from St. Mary Seminary Graduate School of Theology and was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Cleveland in 1974. He served the diocese for 17 years, first as a member of the pastoral team at St. Mary Magdalene, Willowick (1974 – 1980), then as Campus Minister at Cleveland Central Catholic High School (1980 – 989), and Campus Minister at Case Western Reserve University (1989 – 1991).
Bob co-founded Beacon Street Performing Arts Ministry in 1988, and has since led this nonprofit organization that uses the performing arts to proclaim the Gospel. Beacon Street presents nearly 100 programs yearly to students, churches, community groups and corporations.
Kloos and his family have been members of the Community of St. Peter since its inception and were members of the Historic St. Peter parish prior to that. He lives with his two adult children in Cleveland Heights.
Please join us in welcoming Bob as our pastor and praying for his success and the continued success of the Community of St Peter.
