St. Francis Day

Fr. Martin Gutwein leads the service for the St. Francis Day blessing of the animals on Saturday, Oct. 8. The Pet Memorial Garden was also dedicated (please note: High Speed Line trains, street traffic noise and wind affect the sound.) At right, pets and their owners line up for Fr. Marty's blessing.

Our mascot would like to thank everyone who made the Nov. 5 Used Book Sale and Grandma's Attic a rip-roaring success. We sold tons of books, furniture, jewelry, bric-a-brac and even Holy Trinity-brand homemade (church-made, actually) artisan soup.

Dressed as Uncle Sam, our ever-present vestry member and parish historian Craig Burgess stood at the gate during the entire five-hour event to invite passersby to look at what we had for sale in the Plaza and the Great Hall. Thanks to Carol Staszewski and her volunteers.


Give gifts that make an impact on children in poverty. For example, a $100 gift of goats means a family can have milk, which they can both consume and sell to earn money for other necessities.

Please give generously.

Urban Promise continues to equip Camden's children and young adults with the skills necessary for academic achievement, life management, spiritual growth, and Christian leadership.

Please continue to support its work.

Food Pantry

We accept donations for the Collingwood Food Pantry, which is run by and housed at St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church and serves Collingswood and Haddon Township residents.

There is a collection bin to your left in the Tower as you enter the church. Paul and Sharon Wolfgang handle this important ministry for Holy Trinity, and transport the donations to St. Paul's regularly.

Check the pantry's Facebook page for updates.

We are requesting cleaning products for May, but any donations are welcome.

Reaching Out

The parish continues to deliver lunch, typically once a month, to the Collingswood Fire and Police Departments, a ministry begun during the pandemic.

The Rotary Club has been participating in this effort with us.

Volunteers help deliver the meals.

We welcome contributions to offset the cost.

Please send donations marked “Feeding First Responders.”
