This month we pray for the strength to live in radical solidarity, to help vulnerable people both spiritually and materially, and to build a culture of authentic love.
Welcome back to school for all students, families, catechists, and staff! We praise God for the Spirit of wisdom to help us recognize and use our God-given talents.
August is full of festivals, fellowship, fundraisers, and food from many international traditions. Celebrate the variety of cultures and communities that make up our Catholic Diocese of Youngstown.
Bishop Bonnar offers “faith, hope, and love” as “the answer to our present moment, showing the path through our challenges and grief.” May we continue to grow in virtue together.
From May into June, we celebrate graduations, ordinations, and the 80th Anniversary of the Diocese of Youngstown! We return to the flow of ordinary time, knowing the Holy Spirit will guide us.
The month of May brings opportunities to celebrate our new life through Christ’s Resurrection. Our hearts prepare for the Holy Spirit’s movement on Pentecost, renewing the face of the earth.
After 40 days of fasting, we are prepared to begin 50 days of celebration. At the same time, we continue our solidarity with and service to our neighbors in times of poverty in body or spirit.
