Soon after papal approbation, the Trinitarian ministry to Christian captives was incorporated into the Order's title: Order of the Holy Trinity and of Captives . . . Order of the Holy Trinity for the Ransom of Captives. In addition to the Order's purpose of ransoming Christian captives, each local community of Trinitarians served the people of its area.

And so, their ministry included: hospitality, care of the sick and poor, churches, education, etc. In Christian churches, a minister is someone who is authorized by a church or religious organization to perform clergy functions such as teaching of beliefs Eventually, the Trinitarians also assumed the work of evangelization.

Brother John's founding intention expanded quickly beyond the three initial foundations (Cerfroid, Planels, Bourg-la-Reine) into a considerable network of houses committed to the ransom of Christian captives and the mercy-works of their locales. Bourg-la-Reine is a commune in the southern suburbs of Paris, France. The first generation of Trinitarians could count some fifty foundations. In northern France, the Trinitarians were known as “Mathurins” because they were based in the church of Saint-Mathurin in Paris from 1228 onwards. Paris (ˈpærɨs in English; in French) is the Capital of France and the country's largest city  Fundraising and economic expertise constituted important aspects of the Order's life. The Rule's requirement of "the tertia pars" -- that one-third of all income to be set aside for the ransom of Christian captives -- became a noted characteristic of the Order.
The thirteenth century was a time of vitality and achievement. The following centuries, however, proved to be periods of difficulty and decline. The Council of Trent (1545-1563) was a major turning-point in the life of the Church. The Council of Trent was the 19th Ecumenical Council of the Roman Catholic Church. Its twenty-fifth session dealt with regulars and nuns and the reform of religious orders. Clergy is the generic term used to describe the formal religious leadership within a given Religion. A Nun is a Woman who has taken special vows committing her to a religious life A religious order is a lineage of communities and organizations of people who live in some way set apart from society in accordance with their specific religious devotion usually Reforming interests and energies manifested themselves among Trinitarians in France with the foundation at Pontoise, north of Paris, during the last quarter of the sixteenth century. Pontoise is a commune in the northwestern suburbs of Paris, France. Reform-minded Trinitarians in Spain first established the movement known as the Recollection and then, under the able leadership of John Baptist Rico, the movement at Valdepeñas (Ciudad Real) known as the Spanish Discalced at the very end of the sixteenth century. Spain () or the Kingdom of Spain (Reino de España is a country located mostly in southwestern Europe on the Iberian Peninsula. Valdepeñas is a municipality in the Spanish province of Ciudad Real, in the autonomous community of Castile-La Mancha. Far-reaching periods of growth and development followed this rebirth.
In more recent centuries, European events such as revolution, governmental suppression and civil war have had very serious consequences for the Trinitarian Order. The history of Europe describes the passage of time from humans inhabiting the European continent to the present day During the last decades of the nineteenth century, the Trinitarian Order began to rise slowly in Italy and Spain from its collapse. The 19th century of the Common Era began on January 1, 1801 and ended on December 31, 1900, according to the Gregorian calendar Italy (Italia officially the Italian Republic, (Repubblica Italiana is located on the Italian Peninsula in Southern Europe, and on the two largest Spain () or the Kingdom of Spain (Reino de España is a country located mostly in southwestern Europe on the Iberian Peninsula.
