If there’s one word that sums up the immense changes in banking over the last decade – and most likely those coming in the new decade – it is likely “technology.”

The Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corp. wants to turn a former monastery on the city’s South Side into a place where public and neighborhood groups can meet.

There was a time when, on a nice, summer Saturday night, it was standing room only for Catholics at one of Fr. Richard Madden’s outdoor masses.

The former Carmelite Monastery, which drew thousands of worshippers from across the Mahoning Valley on weekends to hear the sermons of Fr. Richard Madden, will take on a new role in the South Side neighborhood where it is located.

The Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation is seeking donations to help revitalize a property as a Neighborhood Action Center.
