Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Youngstown is happy to announce that the Subcommittee on Catholic Home Missions has awarded the Diocese of Youngstown a grant of $70,000.00 for six (6) programs across the Diocese for calendar year 2017.

These programs include:  Migration and Refugee Services (Catholic Charities, Youngstown), Building Bridges Outreach (St. Anthony Parish, Canton), First Step to Service (Catholic Charities, Youngstown), A Communication Bridge for Hispanic Students/Parents/Schools (Our Lady of Peace School, Canton), “Un Puente De Recepcion para las Familias Hispanas” (Holy Cross Academy, North Canton) and Parish Evangelization and Community Enculturation (St. Patrick, Youngstown).

The Subcommittee on Catholic Home Missions is a grant-making agency of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, offering financial support to missionary activities that strengthen the Catholic Church in the United States and in its current and former territories.   Through its annual fundraising campaign, the Catholic Home Missions Appeal, Catholic Home Missions educates American Catholics about mission needs and invites them to assist fellow Catholics in the practice of the faith. Catholic Home Mission has been funding the Diocese of Youngstown since 2006.
