Meals for Shelter


It is with grateful hearts that we announce that the St. Joseph Shelter for Men and Women in Lorain has merged with the 8th Street Family Center in Lorain and is now called ……St. Elizabeth Center.  This new center is in Lorain on Caroline Avenue and brings all Catholic Charities services for the city of Lorain under one roof.

Holy Trinity Parish has volunteered to provide meals to the shelter on the first Sunday of every month November – April. Each month we will list the menu for the upcoming Sunday in the bulletin and all we ask is that you prepare a portion of the meal and drop it off in Holy Trinity’s parking lot at the specified times. Members of our St. Vincent De Paul Commission will deliver your donations to the Shelter immediately following the drop off time. The guests at the shelter certainly do appreciate your time and your generosity.

If you have questions regarding this Ministry, please contact Karen at the Parish Office, 937-5363.


Our next meal will be served on Sunday, March 4th.

We ask that you supply a portion of the meal which will be:

  • -Chicken Casserole  –>  Recipe Specific… click on the link for recipe:   Easy Chicken Casserole
  • Cooked Mixed Vegetables
  • Salad
  • Dessert

You are welcome to prepare any part of the meal or the entire meal.  Please drop off your items in the North Parking Lot between 3:00 and 3:30 pm on the first Sunday of the month.   Please package your items for spill proof transportation.  All items need to be cooked, but not hot.



Food Donations

We will continue our collection of  non- perishable food for the pantry at St. Mary’s in Lorain on the FIRST SUNDAY of each month.

All items can be placed in or near the basket in the back of church by the choir loft stairs.

Just One Item

We are looking for everyone’s help. Simply bring one item like canned soups, vegetables, stews, meats, fruits, juices or boxed items such as prepared meals, instant potatoes, rice, pastas, cereals, etc. Place your item by the choir loft stairs. The shelves at St. Mary’s pantry are in great need of restocking. We are blessed to have a parish filled with servant hearts.

Thank you!
