Social Outreach Committee

The Social Outreach Committee is a collection of the chairpersons from each major social outreach ministry. This group meets collectively on a quarterly basis to communicate important updates being done at the individual ministry level and to improve connectivity and mutual support. 

Each of the subgroups share in one common goal: to provide charity and advocacy to our community and beyond.  These groups include:

Members of this committee work with and under the direction of the pastor and Archdiocesan Pro-Life Ministries to inform parishioners of the value and dignity of ALL human life, from conception to natural death, through prayer, education and outreach initiatives.


Holy Trinity Parish School Service Learning is an idea that what we are teaching our children in school, GIFT and church can be implemented through activities and services that support our teachings by involving them in real world ways. We, at Holy Trinity, have chosen seven missions in which to be involved.  Parents sign up to be mission parents. The teachers plan activities and develop classroom lessons to support the designated mission. The mission parents help coordinate the teachers’ ideas and the kids do the work! The children learn how rewarding it can be to make a difference in the life of someone in need.


This group is committed to highlighting those conditions, issues and the structural barriers that prevent the realization of a constant ethic of life in the public arena. The team sponsors events and activities designed to create awareness of conditions that impact the common good. It cooperates with the Church affiliated organizations such as the Catholic Conference of Kentucky in highlighting issues and offers programming that educates the parish community concerning Catholic Social Teaching.
Mission Statement
A consistent ethic of life---upholding the sacredness of life, the dignity of the person, and the common good---guides the Church’s engagement in public policy matters. The Social Awareness Discussion Group is committed to highlighting those conditions, issues, and structural barriers preventing the realization of a consistent ethic of life in the public arena.   To accomplish its mission, the Social Awareness Discussion will: 1)  sponsor events and activities designed to create awareness about conditions, issues and structural barriers that impact the common good; 2)  cooperate with Church-affiliated organizations such as the Kentucky Catholic Conference in highlighting issues; and 3)  engage in programming that educates the parish community concerning Catholic social teaching.


The Society of St Vincent de Paul Holy Trinity conference funds donated by parishioners using the monthly envelopes provide Emergency Assistance to needy families in the area and quarterly Foreign Twinning with the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of St. Martin de Porres in Belize City, Belize. The primary objective is a person to person home visit to help those in need. The conference sponsors many other ongoing programs at Holy Trinity. The most visible, is the weekend Mass Food Pantry collection taken up by children (adults can participate too!) during the Offertory.
Here is a list of the programs the conference supports:
Food Pantry (this helps St Augustine Parish and St Mathews Area Ministries)Emergency Assistance and Home Visits to clients for basic human needs (rent, utilities, etc.)
Monthly  Friendship Visits to home-bound parishioners and in assisted living facilities
St Vincent de Paul Truck collecting household items such as clothing, appliances, furniture, etc. twice a year
Quarterly Foreign Twinning with St. Martin de Porres in Central America
Thanksgiving Food Baskets
Christmas Links of Friendship
Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a Catholic lay organization, leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frédéric Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul.
As a reflection of the whole family of God, members, who are known as Vincentians, are drawn from every ethnic and cultural background, age group, and economic level. Vincentians are united in an international society of charity by their spirit of poverty, humility and sharing, which is nourished by prayer and reflection, mutually supportive gatherings and adherence to a basic Rule.
Organized locally, Vincentians witness God's love by embracing all works of charity and justice. The Society collaborates with other people of good will in relieving need and addressing its causes, making no distinction in those served because, in them, Vincentians see the face of Christ.


Holy Trinity Parish is committed to assisting those within the community with housing needs. Activities include working as a parish team to construct a Habitat House and provide community volunteers for Project Warm.

Seven Themes of Catholic Social Teaching

"Our faith calls us to work for justice; to serve those in need, to pursue peace, and to defend the life, dignity, and rights of all our sisters and brothers. This is the call of Jesus, the challenge of prophets, and the living tradition of our Church." - A Pastoral Message of the Catholic (A Century of Social Teaching p. 1)
