YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – After 79 years, the Catholic Diocese of Youngstown has published the final edition of The Catholic Exponent.

The diocesan newspaper has kept parishioners informed since 1944.

The final edition is arriving in people’s mailboxes and at churches this weekend.

Late last year, the Diocese announced they were going to transition from a newspaper to a new website and magazine called The Catholic Echo.
