The FOCUS Summer Feeding Program at Holy Trinity Church

Through the provision of social and human development services, FOCUS North America helps the poor and needy in North America. We bring communities, parishes, and partners together in hands-on activities – uniting giver and the underserved — to help transform all of our lives and break the cycle of poverty that afflicts so many in our society..

FOCUS North America

About the FOCUS Summer Feeding Program

Over 15 million children in the United States­—including over 45,000 in Allegheny County—struggle with hunger because they do not have regular access to nutritious and affordable food. Young people are particularly vulnerable to the consequences of food insecurity. Each month these families are faced with a difficult decision: pay the rent or buy groceries. And in this situation, paying the rent always wins — because it is easier to be hungry than homeless.  While the reach of federal nutrition programs is significant, thousands of food-insecure Pittsburgh children still go hungry, especially during the summer months when there are no free or reduced school lunch programs. There are long-term impacts of child hunger that extend beyond the discomfort of being hungry. Food-insecure children, according to Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, are more likely to suffer in areas of education and behavior. This summer, through its Summer Feeding Program, FOCUS will serve thousands of meals across the country inn seven cities, including Pittsburgh.

Holy Trinity Church Selected as Pittsburgh Host Site

FOCUS North America and Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, Pittsburgh, are pleased to announce that Holy Trinity Church will become the FOCUS Summer Feeding Program Host Site for Pittsburgh starting in June 2017.  Each week from mid-June through mid-August, a team of local volunteers from Holy Trinity and other area churches and organizations will gather on Monday through Friday mornings to prepare lunches in Holy Trinity Church’s commercially-equipped kitchen. The project will be coordinated by a paid FOCUS Site Supervisor. The meals will then be delivered to the new distribution site at the Carnegie Library Extension on Federal in Pittsburgh’s North Side, just a few blocks from Holy Trinity Church’s previous location.

Site Supervisor Position Available

FOCUS is seeking to hire a Site Supervisor to manage and coordinate this program. It is a part-time position of approximately 24-30 hours per week during the summer. It is ideal for school teachers,  college/grad students,  stay-at-home parents or energetic retirees.

Stewardship at Holy Trinity Church

Stewardship is caring for the needs of others.
Stewardship is offering one's self to God as He offered Himself to us.
Stewardship is what a person does after saying "I believe..." as proof of that belief.

Oriented Leadership

Stewardship: A Way of Life

Stewardship is the foundation for belonging to Holy Trinity Church and providing support for its many ministries and activities. Orthodox Christian Stewardship is also a way of life, which acknowledges accountability, reverence, and responsibility before God. A primary goal of Stewardship is to promote spiritual growth and strengthen faith. Becoming a Steward begins when we believe in God, to whom we give our love, loyalty and trust and act on those beliefs. As Stewards, we affirm that every aspect of our lives comes as a gift from Him. Stewardship calls on the faithful to cheerfully offer back to God a portion of the gifts with which they have been blessed.

An Active, Annual Committment

An Orthodox Christian Steward is an active participant in the life of the Church. The parish encourages all who accept the Orthodox Faith to become practicing Stewards. Each year the Steward is expected to carefully review his or her personal circumstances and make a commitment of time, talent, and treasure to support the Parish and her Ministries, which in turn support the National Ministries of our Archdiocese, Metropolises, and institutions.

Online Giving

Holy Trinity Church offers various ways to make Stewardship contributions and other offerings. In addition to checks and cash, payments can be made via checking account, savings account, credit card or debit dard. Visit www.HolyTrinityPgh.org/give to donate or www.holytrinitypgh.org/give-info for more information on online giving.

Stewardship FAQs

  • Who is a member of the parish?

    A voting member is a Baptized or Chrismated Orthodox Christian at least 18 years of age who submits a signed stewardship card, participates faithfully in the life of the Church and commits a portion of time, talent and treasure to the Church. The Archdiocese also requires the voting member to remain current through the year on their commitments. Keep in mind that true membership in the Body of Christ also involves living according to His word and within His Church.

  • How can I submit a Stewardship pledge?

    To establish a Stewardship pledge and, thereby, membership at Holy Trinity Church, a Stewardship card must be completed and signed each year. Cards are available in the Narthex of the Church or from the Holy Trinity Church Office by visiting, calling 412-366-8700 or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • Why are their multiple parts to the Stewardship pledge card?

    The Stewardship pledge card contains opportunities to offer both financial support for the operating budget and time and talents for the ministries of the church.

  • Why must I indicate an amount for my financial pledge?

    An amount is required for your pledge to be valid and your commitment allows us to plan our budget for the coming year. Please keep in mind that your stewardship contribution is kept in the strictest of confidence.

  • What if I cannot fulfill my stewardship commitment?

    During the course of a year, people’s circumstances change. Your stewardship is valued because it is made out fo your love for God and His Church. Please do not be concerned if you are unable to meet your stewardship commitment. Simply contact the Church Office or the Stewardship Committee at This email address is being protected from spambots.
