Social Justice Ministries Holy Trinity Parish Faith Communities of Our Lady Queen of Martyrs, sacred heart, and holy family
Holy Trinity will again be participating in the Thanksgiving Basket Program in our community. We will be preparing 25 to 30 baskets for families referred to us through our Food Pantry association with Community Care Alliance and referrals made directly to the Parish Office. Each family receives food for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner and a gift card to Stop and Shop to purchase a turkey. We rely on the generosity of our parishioners for donations of food and donations. The following items are needed for each family:
2 cans of corn
2 cans green beans 2 cans carrots
box of stuffing mix gravy
canned yams/sweet potatoes
pie crust and pie filling
olives or pickles
cake mix and frosting or brownie mix pumpkin/banana/or cranberry bread mix
Food items can be left at the entrances of Church or dropped off at the Rectory or Food Pantry. Our Distribution date is Friday, November 20 so the last weekend to drop off food items is the weekend of November 14/15. You can also make a monetary donation which will cover the cost of the gift cards and food items that we need to purchase. Checks should be made payable to Holy Trinity Parish with “Thanksgiving baskets” in the memo line. Cash can be put in an envelope with “Thanksgiving Baskets” on the envelope. These donations can be put in the weekend collection or dropped off or mailed to the Rectory. We thank you for your generosity.
These ministries apply Jesus' message to the needs of those around us. They allow our parish to reach out to those in our communities and around the world who need our help, and to make known the Gospel's response to situations around us. Some of these ministries have their own pages on this site.
