Join Us on the first Sunday of every month as
Holy Trinity Feeds the Hungry.
Our outreach is two-fold:
- We prepare a meal for the guests at St. Elizabeth Center in Lorain
- We collect non-perishable food for CRS - Community Resource Services out of Avon Lake, Ohio
See descriptions below and information on how to get involved in each.
The St. Elizabeth Center is part of Catholic Charities' presence in Lorain County and is the result of an emergency shelter that was started at the old St. Joseph Church on the corner of 15th & Reid Avenue in Lorain. Now in it's permanent location, the shelter houses and feeds at least 50 guests 365 days a year.
Holy Trinity has chosen the First Sunday of the month to supply these guests with a cooked meal. Every month we share here on the website and in the Sunday bulletin the requested meal items and ask parishioners to prepare and then package your portion of the meal for spill proof transportation.
Our next meal is on Sunday, February 5th and includes:
- Oyster Crackers
- Cornbread Muffins
- Fresh Apples / Bananas / Oranges
Please drop off your items on Sunday, February 5th from 3:00 - 3:30 pm in the Holy Trinity Church Parking Lot. Please remember that items need to be cooked, but do not need to be hot. Please package for spill-proof transportation. If you need to make arrangements for an alternate drop off time, please call the Parish Office Monday thru Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
Please sign up below for any items that you can provide. If you have any questions, please call the Parish Office, Monday thru Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm at 440-937-5363.

On the First Sunday of every month non-perishable food is collected in the back of the Church. Please drop your donations underneath the choir loft stairs when you come to Mass. On Monday morning our parishioners deliver the food to CRS - Community Resource Services out of Avon Lake. CRS assists those that are in need that reside in Avon and Avon Lake. Please no perishable items!
