Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church
(412) 366-8700
985 Providence Boulevard
Pittsburgh, PA 15237

A ministry of caring is an important part of parish life. The Gospel of St. Matthew 25:34-46 calls us to be more aware of needs of the people around us and places importance on caring for needs of others. Join the leaders of the Holy Trinity Visitation Ministry team for a mini-workshop on ways to reach out in love to those in our church families who are homebound, bereaved, coping with health conditions, and/or experiencing other difficulties.  First Floor Conference Room. Light refreshments will be provided. No need to register just come and learn how God is opening your mind and heart to visitation ministry. We need your help with various team activities such as prayer, making phone calls to those who live alone, creating small gifts for the homebound, baking cookies, delivering soup, mailing cards to those who need an encouraging word, home visitation, and much more! This ministry contributes to the mission of the church – to teach, preach and heal – and is a way for individuals to live out the great commandment “Love one another.” Come and see where God is leading you in the giving of your time and talent. We need all… young and old for our Holy Trinity Visitation Ministry. If you have any questions, then please call Amy Armanious 412-628-0973 or email armanio.2007@hotmail.com
