Fr. Robert Cole — Pastor Emeritus
Fr. Robert Cole served as pastor of Sacred Heart Catholic Church from January 2008 through June 2018. Since his ordination in 1972 has has served in parishes in Cleveland, Westlake, and Olmsted Falls.
Born and raised in greater Cleveland, Fr. Cole enjoyed being pastor “on the western fringe of Lorain County.” What he found so exciting was that, although Sacred Heart is a small parish, the community has a bright future for growth and development. He thoroughly enjoyed shepherding in the community of Oberlin.
