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.

THE SOCIETY OF ST VINCENT DE PAUL HOLY TRINITY CONFERENCE
The Society of St Vincent de Paul Holy Trinity Conference uses funds donated by parishioners (online or using the monthly envelopes) to provide Emergency Assistance to needy families in our area. These needy clients come to our attention by calling the Holy Trinity Parish Office at 897-5207 or through contact with another Conference in Louisville. We work with the other St Vincent de Paul Conferences and local ministries to address the needs of our clients.
In addition to the Emergency Assistance Program, the conference sponsors many other ongoing programs at Holy Trinity, including the following:
Food Pantries -we collect food and provide funding and volunteers for food pantries at the St Vincent de Paul Campus and at our sister parish Holy Name
Monthly Friendship Visits to parishioners who are home bound or in assisted living facilities
Thanksgiving Food Baskets-in partnership with St. Augustine Parish in Louisville’s West End
Christmas Links of Friendship Program, through which parishioners purchase Christmas presents for the needy in Southern Kentucky and at Boys & Girls Haven in Louisville
