Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Youngstown has always been available to support the St. Vincent de Paul Society in times of need. The recent emergency closing of the Dining Hall was one of those times. Catholic Charities and the Society have a shared mission to care for the vulnerable and welcome the stranger, which includes feeding the hungry.

Catholic Charities supports the National Council of St. Vincent de Paul for service to its member Councils in northeastern Ohio. Catholic Charities also acknowledges the leadership of Brian Antal, president of the Mahoning County Council of the Society. He was the right person at the right time when he became president four years ago. We thank him for his dedicated and committed service.

While the Catholic Diocese of Youngstown has no direct authority over the St. Vincent de Paul Society of Mahoning County, we are committed to work with them in developing a shared vision to address the needs of the most vulnerable in our community.
