Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Youngstown has always been available to assist the St. Vincent DePaul Society in times of need. Catholic Charities and the Society have a shared mission to care for the vulnerable and welcome the stranger, which includes feeding the hungry. Father David Bergner, SDS, Diocesan Vicar for Social Concerns, will be meeting with the local leadership of the St. Vincent DePaul Society to determine a way forward with the goal to re-open the Society's dining hall as soon as possible.

The Catholic Diocese of Youngstown has no authority over the St. Vincent DePaul Society of Mahoning County. The Society is an independent charity with its national headquarters in St. Louis, MO.
