(Cleveland) - A Tug of War between two top religious leaders.

Rev. Bob Begin meets with Cleveland Catholic Bishop Richard Lennon on Friday.

Lennon decided that Father Bob should retire from St. Coleman Catholic Church, but the popular priest wants to keep his position.

According to church law, a priest must submit retirement papers when he turns 75, but the Bishop is not required to accept them.

Parishioners have collected more than 3,000 signatures asking that Rev. Begin remain on the job.
