Making a difference is a big part of who we are as a congregation. At Holy Trinity, we concentrate on food ministries, but we are always looking for ways to partner with others and support the needs of people in Narberth, Philadelphia, and all around the world!
Grace Lutheran - Mantua
Grace Lutheran in Philadelphia is our “sister church” and we are honored to partner with them and help support their various food ministries. They get what it means to “be church”, and are a wonderful example of getting outside of the four walls of their church building, being in the community, and finding out what is needed. We are so thankful that when they need extra resources to help serve their community, we can rally our congregation and provide some of those resources. Throughout the year we have canned good drives, clothing drives, or even fundraisers to provide whatever is Grace Lutheran tells us they need to help support their wonderful work.
In the spring of 2014, Holy Trinity decided we could do more to support our community, and we partnered with a wonderful company called Trellis For Tomorrow to build three raised-bed gardens. While Trellis provided us with the know-how and gardening expertise, we also reached out to the Narberth Community to invite any gardening enthusiasts to pitch in if they were interested. Part of the agreement with Trellis is that we donate a majority of our produce to some sort of outreach program. With that, we are so thrilled to send our fresh produce to our sister congregation – Grace Lutheran Church in Mantua.
Back in October 2015, Holy Trinity partnered with our sister congregation to package 21,358 meals – all of which were used to feed hungry people through Grace’s various food ministries in West Philadelphia. It was an incredible day, as over 90 volunteers came together in service and fellowship. After packaging another 20,000 meals with 100+ servants in October 2016, meal packaging events have now become a yearly tradition of faith and love. In 2019, the event was named in loving memory of Barb Grimaldi, a young member of Holy Trinity who had jump-started the ministry four years prior to her death.
