Meals for Shelter

Meals will continue this summer!

Thank you all who have helped this past winter season.

It is with grateful hearts that we announce that the St. Joseph Shelter for Men and Women in Lorain will be open again this year. The Shelter consists of two buildings, one for the women and the other for the men. Total guests at full capacity could number around 80 – 85. 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.


If you are interested in helping cook this summer:

Items will not be published in the bulletin over the summer.


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 3:30 and 4:00 on the first Sunday of the month.   Please package your items for spill proof transportation.  All items need to be cooked, but not hot.
