The James and Coralie Centofanti Charitable Foundation has awarded the Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown’s Ministry Conference Room Project a grant of $20,000.
The grant will be used to establish a Ministry Conference Room with technological capabilities for teleconferences, webinars and other web-based communication. The benefit is two-fold. First, it will allow us to offer necessary continuing education for the Sisters, staff and ministry volunteers in a more efficient manor and allow them to take advantage of the growing opportunities offered online. Further, the Ministry Conference Room will allow our leadership to interact with, oversee and augment its many ministries in Mahoning County and those beyond.
“James and Coralie Centofanti made the Mahoning Valley a better place through their philanthropic endeavors, and their legacy continues through their foundation,” states Sister Nancy Dawson, General Superior. “We are honored that such a prestigious organization as the foundation recognizes the importance of our project, and we are very grateful to the foundation’s board members for their generosity and support.”
Mark Graham, chairman of the distribution committee for the foundation, says, that James Centofanti “always had a compassion for those in need and the underprivileged that was reflected during his life through his generosity in working to improve the lives of all people.”
