Third Tuesday Casserole Ministry: March  16
"Our most vulnerable neighbors are the most impacted" (Ann V.)
Join us in our mission to address food insecurity in our community in partnership with The Church of the Holy Spirit. Servants needed to prepare and transport casseroles, package meals, and deliver meals to our brothers and sisters in Christ. One Holy Trinity parishioner describes her experience in this ministry; "I watch and help as empty bags and boxes are filled to the brim with food and other necessities and then delivered to over 70 families. It is truly a miracle of caring, hard work, and generosity and I am humbled."
