That’s the Christmas wish for the city from Cleveland Bishop Nelson Perez.

“I think for Cleveland and for the world is peace,” Bishop Perez said during a live interview on WKYC’s morning show Tuesday. “We really need peace. We’re seeing a lot of violence around the world, and sometimes even in our city like this past weekend. So we need peace of heart, peace for families and peace within everybody.”

Bishop Perez was in our studio to discuss the 24-hour fundraiser #WeGiveCatholic as part of Giving Tuesday.

“There’s all sorts of parishes, schools and opportunities to give to make life easier for other people.”
