Thanksgiving Food Drive

Support the Thanksgiving Food Drive. Our goal is to provide meals for Fr. McKenna Center, Hope and a Home and Migrant Families. $40 purchases a Thanksgiving meal for a family of 4 that includes: Frozen turkey; 1 16 oz. box instant mashed potatoes; 2 6 oz. packages stuffing mix ; 1 large can yams/sweet potatoes; 2 16 oz. cans green beans; 2 16 oz. cans corn; 1 can cranberry sauce; makings for a cake or pie for dessert. Holy Trinity students organize the food baskets each year. Additional funds will be used to provide the mid-day meal at SOME on Thanksgiving Day.

Black Catholic History at Holy Trinity

Over the past year, a group of parishioners have been researching and publishing articles on the role of slavery, segregation, and race in Holy Trinity’s history. This special bulletin issue highlights excerpts of this important work and profiles on U.S. Black Catholic candidates for sainthood, as well as further invitations to pray and learn. The full history series may be found at the Holy Trinity History page.

Parishioners for Others

Slavery, Segregation, and Race in Our Parish
We invite Holy Trinity parishioners and others to learn more about the role of slavery, segregation, and race in Holy Trinity’s history. We hope that, in throwing more light on our parish’s past, our work will open doors to reflecting on that past and on its implications for our present, and inspire our daily interactions with others. Visit our website to read the articles.
